For me it's no big deal as I don't need 3d or 3000+FPS in GLXgears, so
I'm fine with the vesa driver...
Here's the output for me:

yeah that looks about right. Now, I was thinking. There should be a way to compile nvidia-glx from source right?? Anyone know how to go about doing this the debian way??? done it in gentoo before, but never the debian way. (debian way=the right way) :-D.
