Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 180.29-1
Severity: important

I did an upgrade
[INSTALL] nvidia-kernel-2.6.28-1-amd64
[UPGRADE] nvidia-glx 173.14.09-5 -> 180.29-1
[UPGRADE] nvidia-glx-ia32 173.14.09-5 -> 180.29-1

before I had twinview working with 2 monitors, the laptop
and an externally connected one. Now I only have 1 monitor
working the laptop one.

I can't go back to 173 because it doesn't compile on 2.6.28.

I have also tried this 180 on 2.6.26 and it has the same affect on this laptop
