Interesting. I had lots of problems with the two debian packages, but have had rock solid performance from the downloaded drivers from Nvidia. This backward than what is usual in the Debian community.

I've had the same thing; the drivers that I nabbed from nVidia have been
rock-solid and quite functional, whereas the Debian packages...besides,
why is it a 'crap driver'?

I use Nvidia drivers installed from their script for *Backstreet Ruby* the multi-seat Linux solution, because it allows separate Xservers for separate Nvidia chip-based video-cards, which the X nv driver does not offer and I have never had a crash yet.
