Short procedure for installing 331.38 is:

Get the install file.

0. Boot with kernel param 3 or in terminal as root do systemctl stop xdm.
1. sh -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
Or, install DKMS, run the Nvidia install script and allow it to register with
DKMS. No more manually building kernel modules after kernel updates. Works for
Nvidia and VirtualBox drivers here. :-)
"Nvidia install script" - do you mean 'sh nvidia........." or the "./nvidia-installer" thingie?
