# ls /usr/lib/nvidia/current
libglx.so	  nv-control-dpy	nvidia_drv.so  nvidia-settings

i have jessy. why modprobe cannot find nvidia_drv.so? when i used wheezy i
didnot need the xorg.conf. it stopped to work after upgrading. There was
no problem when i had upgraded from wheeze to jessy. But when kernel
version was changed to 3.9 the problem was occuring. What can be broken?
