You mean PhysX drivers ?

Afaik (not sure exactly, but I can ask) games, based on Linux PhysX SDK, do not require PSS installation.
GPU acceleration is not supported on Linux.

All right, I've got the answer - there is no PhysX Drivers for Linux, since PhysX based games on Linux platform are not dependent of PSS installation (engine is using static/shared libs).

Also, I've never heard of possibility to force install them.
