Short procedure for installing 331.38 is:

Get the 331.38.run install file.

0. Boot with kernel param 3 or in terminal as root do systemctl stop xdm.
1. sh NVIDIA...331.38.run -x to extract.
2. cp nvidia_3.13_kernel.patch to NVIDIA...331.38 folder
3. Apply patch with patch -p 1 -i ./nvidia_3.13_kernel.patch for example.
4. ./nvidia-installer -a
5. Reboot.
6. Profit.
Just one addition : Don't delete the unpacked nvidia driver sources after
installation. If you install a new kernel version, you can run
./nvidia-installer -aK -k <new kernel version>
to build the nvidia kernel driver module for the new kernel version before
booting the new kernel.
No need to boot into textmode first to reinstall the nvidia drivers any more.
