Re: libc6 and X11 seem not to work together

From what Hans reported, it was my impression this is related to the Xorg

Yes, my system (working) runs Nvidia drivers, self-compiled 2.6.29 realtime
I have Nvidia GeForce 7000M and it is not working.

I just installed Stable and everything works nicely. If I (just/only) upgrade my system to Testing then the X does not work.

kernel #1 SMP PREEMPT RT  x86_64 GNU/Linux
ii  libc6          2.9-26         GNU C Library: Shared libraries
ii  nvidia-glx     180.44-2       NVIDIA binary Xorg driver
ii  xserver-xorg-c 2:1.6.4-1      Xorg X server - core server

I think the card is Nvidia 7600, system is current debian sid, but nvidia-glx might be one down from current

The non-3D (default) nvidia drivers do not function properly with some 7600s, in particular, the 7600 GT. I must use another driver with mine. I use the nvidia proprietary blob[0], it works fine.
