This is a BASH script, which download NVIDIA installer, extract it, patch it and make new patched installer package. This is very quickly tested alpha version so if you have any problems please let me know or if this works as it should you can also let me know. I use here currently Isaak I. Aleksandrov patches and ARCH Linux Patches + my own patches. Currently this works with NVIDIA 340.108 / 418.113 / 435.21 drivers and latest 5.10 and 5.9 kernels.
Note 390.141 works with latest kernels 5.9 and 5.10 without patches. Removed until it stops working.
This should work with any distribution. You just need install wget and patch packages.
