Thanks Aaron and thanks also to Benny for the advice. Rebuilding the kernel solved the problem and now I can start X with 295.20. But why did this work? Nvidia-drivers builds its own kernel module and just installs it with the other kernel modules. I did not get a new kernel source for this rebuild; I just used the one I already had (3.2.1). What happened during the rebuilding to change the new kernel? Frank Peters
