Yes, it is.
But to add, Alan has a good suggestion earlier if you want to follow, that
Before removing a kernel, I'd purge the nvidia driver , reboot into a
install nvida-current, then reboot into the usual graphical interface and
that fixes it. I've never had much luck messing with the kernel but then
had to do that in quite a while.
meaning...at a command prompt
sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-common
sudo apt-get install nvidia-common
but please check if you have nvidia-common or nvidia-current installed and
use the right one.
Also it may also work if you put in "nomodeset" at the linux line of the
grub entry and boot-up. This will take you to a non-driver setting (vesa)
and you can then install the nvidia-current or nvidia-common.
But if these appear too daunting, then you just go back to the old kernel.
Good luck - Goh Lip
