I am running Debian Etch 4.0. Last time I ran the update and it got me a new 
kernel :
$ uname -a
Linux paulandcilla 2.6.18-5-686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 26 17:54:59 UTC 2007 i686 

when I rebooted my Xwindows didn't work with driver nvidia. When I changed it 
to nv xwindows comes up, so ai reran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg a few 
times, no success, until finally I unchecked GLX from the video 
Now I get my NVIDIA splash screen and it comes up  BUT I still have some 
when I try to go to the system menu and run NVIDIA X server settings, the 
hourglass spins, I see the NVIDIA box in the system tray, then it disappears.
also, when I run mplayer I get :
~$ mplayer
Segmentation fault

and nothing happens.
