I update daily.

No strange output in any of the logs. Looks like everything is loading

It shows the Nvidia splash, then I hear the gdm "song", see my cursor
and X is frozen.

I read somewhere (nvforums??) that there is a problem with the latest
driver and some cards.

I contacted an Nvidia person and he suggested I try the earlier driver.
Only problem is it won't install becaure it claims I don't have the
correct kernel sources installed.

I thought I did.

I'm running 2.6.10-4-386 for my kernel. What package do I need to get
the sources for that kernel?
