After the d-u today (including the kernel update), the non-free flashplugin is crashing or not loading in Iceweasel and Chromium . . . but it runs in Opera . . . after which it runs in Iceweasel and Chromium till next time I open them up (sometimes just a few minutes earlier) when I have to run it in Opera first to get it to run in Iceweasel . . . . very strange . . . any ideas?

I have experienced this issue as well and rolling back to 285.05.09 works for me. Seems Flash has bad interactions with the 290 series and I may send a bug report to nVidia per their procedure to determine where the fault lies (Adobe or nVidia)

if it is an Adobe issue most likely this will go into their bit bucket considering their history relating to Flash on Linux

Yep I saw the same issue with 290.03 and flash.

But where are you guys getting ver. 285.05.09? All I can find to revert to is "280.13.really.275.28-1" in the debian sid repo.

Thanks.

Any other method of installing Nvidia closed source drivers than the one in our manual are unrecommended and unsupported in our forums. Experimental repositories and custom made packages are not mentioned there - topic moved out to "User Scripts & Dragons".

Ahhh ---- OK, thanks clubex. I've been having such good luck with the nvidia-glx packages, I think I'll just wait for the next one.
