The instructions for upgrade note that removing third-party software (including software from Debian testing or sid) should be uninstalled, which would include the proprietary nvidia driver. I know I've installed some unofficial backport packages that may cause this problem, and I plan on taking an inventory, uninstalling or downgrading, then reinstalling after the upgrade (if necessary).
Did you uninstall all third party packages?

After my upgrade to wheezy my X has failed.
I tried to find the problem to fix it, and I was not be able to do it...
I have a partial success narrowing the problem...
And I ask you for help to find it clearly I don't know if it is amd64 specific or not...
The usual suspect is the nvidia driver BUT only after the upgrade?
Anyway if I downgrade this packages X works and conversely if I upgrade it the X fail.

X start normally but when I click in the greeting login of kdm X restart and in some times freeze the machine...
If I only type the password all seems to start and after some seconds fail.
For failsafe xterm works even kwin (with effects) and chromium but if I start konsole I get a corrupt diplay and a crash of X...Do you know the cause or have any ideas?Thanks in advance.
Perhaps the depth of love can be calibrated by the number of different selves that are actively involved in a given relationship.
