The only thing I have to remember is to symlink libglx.so.169.04 to
libglx.so whenever xserver-xorg-core is updated.

$ ls -1l libglx.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Dec 31 03:03 libglx.so ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 763496 Dec  3 22:25 libglx.so.169.04
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 429010 Dec 21 18:43 libglx.so.software

could you explain that process a little more please, I may want to do that. My system breaks every time there is an update it seems.. I have the GEForce 7300 card, running Lenny and I usually end up trying the NVIDIA*.run 3 or four times before it works, rebooting, X crashes... repeat...

Sorry for not specifying the directory where libglx.so lives:

If libglx.so is not a link, then I force it to be a symlink from libglx.so.NNN.NN.
