I run nvidia graphics drivers on my AMD64 3200+, in both 64 bit and 32

Here's what I do.
~apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-source
~m-a prepare (sudo or root)
~m-a a-i nvidia (sudo or root)
~dpkg -i /usr/src/nvidia-kernel-moduleXXXXX.deb (sudo or root)

Thanks for this. A recent sid upgrade borked X and it would appear the
'nv' module had disappeared. I resorted to a backup system on a
different partition but avoided updating for a while. I spotted your
post and thought I'd try to recover the main system and whoopie!
I had to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg because I'd been playing around
trying to fix the problem orginally but other than that, I have the best
clarity of diplay I've seen .... and it wsn't bad before :)
No problem, glad it works for you as well. Now if we could only work
out what was wrong with the OP's setup :)
