Default 195.36.15 driver breaks 32-bit apps

I'm running 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 and installed the latest driver (so I can run CUDA 3.0). Somehow, the 32-bit compatibility mode is broken now.

When the driver compiled, there two error messages during the phase in which it processed 32-bit compatibility: something about being unable to link files because the file already exists.

Any suggestions? (Perhaps I should manually delete all of the *GL* files before compiling the driver.

Listing /usr/lib32 shows:

jsmith@jsmith-desktop:~/Desktop$ cd /usr/lib32
jsmith@jsmith-desktop:/usr/lib32$ ls -al *GL*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2010-04-05 09:13 libGLcore.so.1 -> libGLcore.so.195.36.15
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23085632 2010-04-05 09:13 libGLcore.so.195.36.15
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 661 2010-04-05 09:13 libGL.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2010-04-05 09:13 libGL.so -> libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2010-04-05 09:13 libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.195.36.15
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 738784 2010-04-05 09:13 libGL.so.195.36.15
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2010-04-03 09:08 libGLU.so -> libGLU.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 2010-04-03 09:08 libGLU.so.1 -> libGLU.so.1.3.070600
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 456380 2009-10-13 18:08 libGLU.so.1.3.070600



so libGLU is the old version and the others are 195.36.15 . Was the driver supposed to build a new version of libGLU?

I install all x32 apps and then install the driver, that way it works out well, google earth is a x32 package which runs fine using this method.

Bizarre outcome: the problem fixed itself! Without my doing anything, my 32 bit apps work fine now (@#!!?).

I thought computers were supposed to be deterministic, not random number generators.
