Default xorg 7.2-3

Greetings all.
Anyone running Debian x86_64 with Xorg 7.2-3?

I just did an upgrade from 7.1.0-18 to 7.2-3 which has caused big X problems. Like NO display. I'm quite familiar with xorg.conf & m-a. The nvidia module builds and will load with the usual text output, but no joy with startx or kdm.
So back to xorg - 7.1 and no problems at all (except now I can't update or upgrade without re-installing xorg 7.2-3)

I don't know if this is an nvidia kernel problem or an xorg problem, just thought I'd ask if anyone is experiencing the same issues and may have a solution.
thanks,
Chris W.

Update:

I booted with pci=nommconf and there is no difference.
NVRM reports that the module "nvidia" doesn't exist.
I found it here:
/lib/modules/2.6.22-rc3-amd64/nvidia/nvidia.ko
just for fun, I put a link to it from here:
/lib/modules/2.6.18-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia/blahblah.ko
and still no X with 7.2-3.
The open source module "nv" runs fine (but much slower than Nvidia's, of course).
Just for the record, up until xorg 7.2-3, the nvidia module loaded and ran fine on THIS system.
I'm beginning to think this is a Xorg bug and NOT an nvidia issue....

"you HAVE to reinstall the driver!"

...By this you mean, recompile with m-a, am I correct?

Hello all,

Its not just me, I'm finding others with the same problem. I've used all the standard approaches to problem solving plus invented a few and still will not work.....

However, I found this in my research:

Bug#420177: nvidia-glx does not work with Xserver 1.3
Bug#428731: xserver-xorg: After updating from version 1:7.1.0-18 to version 1:7.2-3 the driver nvidia can no longer be found.
Bug#420302: xserver crash with nvidia driver after upgrade.
Bug#420417: inhibits loading nvidia module
Bug#420450: fails to find OpenGL nvidia driver, does not start
Bug#428580: xorg: xorg 1:7.1.0-18 can't load directly nvidia driver module 1.0.8776+6
Bug#428640: xserver-xorg-core: Loading of certain drivers is broken
Bug#428697: xserver-xorg-core couldn't open module nvidia
Forcibly Merged 420177 420302 420417 420450 428580 428640 428697 428731

Now, we're waiting for a fix.

chris,
I'm not sure where you're seeing those bugs, however if you'd like further assistance from NVIDIA, I'd suggest following the instructions here:

Hello again.

Actually I should have said that I'm not running the Nvidia Linux installer, as I've heard from a reliable source that it breaks things. Apparently, after running it, if you "go back" to using the debian "installer - module assistant - system links are overwritten. I must say though, I've never ran the Nvidia installer myself, and am loosely quoting other, much more experienced computer users & programmers, so I'm not speaking from my own research & experience.
So, respectfully, it doesn't help to suggest a simple approach of reinstalling when there are different methods of doing so.

If you're having problems with the Debian packages not correctly installing the drivers, then I would suggest reporting that as a bug to Debian.

If you install the .run package, you can restore your system to the state it was in before by running nvidia-installer --uninstall.
