Default cann't start x after kernel upgrade to 2.6.32-5-686

hi guys,

i'm running debian squeeze. and updated my linux kernel to 2.6.32-5-686. After built nvidia driver. I found i couldn't start x server.

i suppose the driver installation is ok. though i uploaded install log, with xorg.conf and xorg log. Right now i am using nv driver instead. i also guess there's nothing to do with "nouveau". no such module found by "lsmod".

PS: geforce dirver version is 195.36.24. graphics card NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M

Default Re: cann't start x after kernel upgrade

drat. i've thought the problem was resolved.

since i updated xserver-xorg using "aptitude update/upgrade" this morning, i could start x server now.

root:/var/log# glxinfo | grep render
Error: glXCreateContext failed
root:/var/log# grep -n '^(EE)' Xorg.0.log
131: (EE) Jun 15 01:29:18 NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
132: (EE) Jun 15 01:29:18 NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
133: (EE) Jun 15 01:29:18 NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
134: (EE) Jun 15 01:29:18 NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
135: (EE) Jun 15 01:29:18 NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.
i found xserver-xorg apparently replaced the libglx.so file with his own's
root:/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions# ls -l

compiled for 1.7.7, module version = 1.0.0

Then i updated nividia driver to version 195.36.31, and left nothing in xorg.conf file but
Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"

Still meeting the same problem as yesterday, x server crashed.
I upload the both Xorg.0.log files
