Update Nvidia Drivers

Hi guys,
How can I update my Nvidia Drivers? I searched a bit and I realized than I need Linux kernel headers. However you do not provide Linux Kernel Headers anywhere for the Elive Kernel. Where and how can I get them?

How to update my Nvidia drivers?

Phoenix do you think I didn't tried?
apt-get kernel-source
doesn't work. Try it yourself.

So nobody in this forum know how could we update the Nvidia drivers? Oh guys this is not good. Not good at all. Downloading the nvidiablablabla.sh file and running it in running level 3 mode (how can I boot in that what should I change in inittab) with kernel headers install should do the job. But it doesn't. Some scripts updates NVIDIA TLS and blows everything up after rebooting. So why should everything be so different from Distro to Distro. I hope they do something here.
