Default Debian Etch - Nvidia/Xorg problems after kernel patch

I used the Debian Etch auto-update utility to update the kernel from 2.6.18-3 to 2.6.18-4. X failed to load after the update. I downloaded the kernel source files and ran the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run file in an attempt to fix the problem. Then I rebooted. When I look at the Xorg log, the problem it returns is:
Code:
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server Aborting
So I ran dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg and Xorg would start up again.
Now anytime I try to install the nvidia drivers, I can't start Xorg. When I run the reconfigure xorg command above, I can't use any 3d apps. What can I do to get the nvidia drivers to play nicely with Xorg again?

Default Re: Debian Etch - Nvidia/Xorg problems after kernel patch

The appropriate logs are attached. Granted, I am running X now, so I have run:
Code:
dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg and Xorg
since the last time that I ran
Code:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run
Do you require any more information?

According to your bug report, you're using the 'nv' X driver, not the nvidia X driver. I'd need to see a bug report that captures the problem you're reporting.

Thanks,
