Hello Alex

I did not do the latest update, yet. So, I will not do!

Currently installed (Note: it's a AMD64 box):
thomas at AMD64:~$ dpkg -l |grep nvidia-glx
ii  nvidia-glx 
1.0.8762+              NVIDIA binary XFree86 4.x/X.Org driver
thomas at AMD64:~$

And the update should bring me 1.0.8762+

So what is installed on your system right now?

Regards, Thomas
