    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I wanted to create a guide on how to install nvidia drivers manually when the installer fails, I mean the official one that you can get from the official website.
Why? Well, I'm running Pop_Os 21.04 and I use "xanmod-cacule" kernel.
Well, version 5.14 broke on nvidia driver version 470.57.02 so I had to install the latest version, 470.62.01.
That took me on a long journey, I took 4+ hours to figure out how to MANUALLY install everything, by compiling everything from source, and in the end it was easy, I just had to find the correct packages and commands...

So I created a very basic tutorial for myself, and since no one did, I wanted to put together a full guide for the users who can't wait pop_os nvidia custom driver to be released a month later, while using a mainline kernel or something which is not nvidia-friendly...

I would even upload some screenshots, to better explain the whole procedure, which is pretty short, but can be hard for beginners.
Today, I went from beginner to average in this field, but I want to help the other users who are facing that exact problem, or just want to install everything manually, from the source.

Guides are always useful and may help someone. I wanted to answer "Yes", but NVIDIA isn't giving me a hard time. I intentionally avoid it for better Linux compatibility and stability.
