kernel upgrade -> problems


Hi all,

I was using debian sarge with 2.6.8-1-686 and with synaptic package manager today I upgraded to 2.6.8-2 and some other things. The thing is that when gdm is trying to boot it doesnt work, what can be the problem?

If I boot 2.6.8-1-686 it works again :/

When updating gdm the config window found a kind of conflict, it said that gdm.conf was changed (by myself or a script) and that recommended not to change it, so I kept it. Can it be that the old .conf only worked with the old kernel?

Maybe it also has to do with the fact that my laptop has a nvidia card (it gave me a lot of problems to install the drivers).

Thanks a lot!

Reinstall Drivers

According to the nVidia site, you need to reinstall the drivers whenever you upgrade to a new kernel.

Hope this helps,
