I noticed the presence of "dkms" in the list of packages to be installed, is it normal? In case, will it conflict with dmakms or create some other problem?

m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source && apt-get dist-upgrade

dkms is usually not a problem, however after it is automatically installed I suggest:

      Code:

apt-get purge --remove dkms xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source
apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-glx

That would remove nvidia-kernel-dkms. Is it OK to let it go?

It is ok, but you should type

      Code:
echo nvidia-kernel-source >> /etc/default/dmakms

to activate dmakms. If not you have to use
      Code:
m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source

after each kernel update.
