Hi Guys,

I had problems with older drivers too when i was on edgy and similarly, i
moved to binary drivers. With my recent upgrade to feisty, I moved back to
the packages and i would say that it's working fine :D Anyway, I am running
feisty on a DELL XPS 1210, with a GeForce Go 7400.

The current nvidia-glx version on the feisty repos is 96.31. If that version
works for you, you can consider reverting to it. You might get hit with
mismatched kernel module APIs if you aren't too careful though, but that
ain't too hard to fix :-)
