Hi all,

I upgraded a desktop machine running Breezy before Christmas as
usual with `apt-get dist-upgrade'. After that X didn't start anymore
with the following error:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!

I don't know what to do. Before upgrading everything worked fine. I
also repeated the steps in

Any help is appreciated!! This machine is unusable for the
corresponding user.
