My graphical environment is working again. Installing
linux-image-3.10-3-amd64 and nvidia-kernel-3.10-3-amd64 packages did the

I don't want all that stuff required for compilation of kernel module. The
easiest way for me is to install couple of packages. The problem is that
for rock-solid graphic environment all components should be the same
version (at least for nvidia). When that breaks, people gets in trouble
after upgrade. Please be more attentive when making packages.

Everything works as expected. You can now close this ticket.
