[solved]I followed the most recent post on nvidia-glx and followed towo's recommendations by enabling Frickelplatz and installing nvidia-kernel-source and nvidia-glx, however X failed to start,the nvidia kernel module and nvidia-glx have different version numbers.Any suggestions ?

Thanks towo, I knew I can count on you Smile Sorry I can't paste grep nvidia because I'm using LiveCd , can't go past command line in aptosid, but what I'm getting is nvidia-kernel-dkms 260.19.21-1 , and also nvidia-kernel-260.19.36-0 frikel

I am just wondering but why is it bad to have dkms installed? What kind of issues does it cause? I have it installed and it seems to help when a new kernel is installed. Thanks
