nvidia-installer was inspired by
loki_update tool: http://icculus.org/loki_setup/
The FTP and HTTP support in
nvidia-installer is based upon
snarf 7.0: http://www.xach.com/snarf/
The source code for nvidia-installer, including the FTP/HTTP code based on snarf, is available at: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/nvidia-installer/
The self-extracting archive (also known as the
.run file) is generated using
The version of makeself.sh used to create the .run is bundled within the .run file, and can retrieved by extracting the .run file's contents, e.g.:
$ sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.121.run --extract-only $ ls -l NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.121/makeself.sh
