Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Severity: normal

Yet another version (180.60) is available here

Release Highlights :
    * Fixed stability problems with some GeForce 6200/7200/7300 GPUs on multi-core/SMP systems.
    * Fixed VGA console restoration on some laptop GPUs.
    * Fixed a bug that caused kernel crashes when attempting to initialize NvAGP on Linux/x86-64 kernels built with the CONFIG_GART_IOMMU kernel option.
    * Fixed a bug that caused some performance levels to be disabled on certain GeForce 9 series notebooks.
    * Fixed an OpenGL driver crash while running Bibble 5.

I've managed to compile an amd64 version from it
as well as the nvidia-settings from the same version

Works pretty well so far
