As you may know,dkms is a facility which lets you to install drivers as module and it’ll compatible with kernel upgrade.Driver will live as its source code in system,so after each kernel upgrade , driver module will recompile itself to work properly with new kernel.I read about dkms , but I have no experience to configure it by myself.
I want to install nvidia driver using dkms,but I don’t know how and where I can find source code of nvidia driver.

You’d have to ask nVidia for the source to their closed-source driver.
Just add the nVidia repo and use their precompiled modules - there’s no
need to mess with dkms - if you’re having trouble getting the driver
installed, then start with that rather than proposing a workaround that’s
maybe not what you need.
