It just seems odd that this would be overlooked as to someone who is 
newer to Linux than myself could find themselves in trouble if they just 
updated because the system says there are updates.

I look on every update now just to make sure.

I'm just using a nvidia 9400 gt but I need the drivers from nvidia for 
the Cuda

I run Set at home with boinc and GPU crunching is quick

Anyway will wait a bit and see. Last time only took 4 days so we shall see
