Re: non-free nvidia driver on etch?

I have used Andrew's Debian-nVidia HOWTO with success in the past. The
problem is that the nvidia-glx package is not available on testing at
this time. I can't use the unstable nvidia-glx package, because the
unstable package depends on xorg 1.7.0.

Is there a workaround, or should I bite the bullet and try installing
xorg 1.7.0? I would really prefer not to install xorg from unstable as
it looks like it will be a major PITA. All I want is the latest nvidia

Here is a howto that I use.  It seems to be very complete.
