Bug#673795: Solution for the original NVidia driver

In many years i could only experience one time that the nvidia-package
of Debian results in a running X-system.
And i installed Debian on many different systems with different NVidia
Sorry that's really annoying.

Now i could find out why the installation of the original drivers fail
with a sigterm message:
The reason is again a debian script. :-(
This kills the NVidia installer and the user thinks the problem is the
installation script of NVidia.

I know you will damn me for my opinion, but X has to run in a simple way
without reading tons of readme's or editing xorg.conf with the vi.
The original NVidia driver normally will do this job - install and have
direct a running X.
Why this is not possible with the debian packages?
