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
1.0.8762+188.8.131.52-4 NVIDIA binary XFree86 4.x/X.Org driver
thomas at AMD64:~$
And the update should bring me 1.0.8762+184.108.40.206-5.
So what is installed on your system right now?
