i just installed ubuntu 64 4.10 and im liking it very much
when i try to run the updates ... it wants to upgrade to the newer kernel
ok so when i do this // reboot/// then x will not launch
this is the same problem i have when i first install
what i have to do is apt-get nvidia-glx and nvidia-glx-config enable and then it works
but after the upgrades it won't work
any help pls .,,, im lost

The binary Nvidia drivers, nvidia-glx, are kernel specific. So every time you upgrade your kernel you will need to upgrade the nvidia-glx package to a version that is specific for your new kernel. If the nvidia-glx packages are not recompiled to match your kernel version you are out of luck using those. Assuming you didn't wipe out your old kernel during the install you can boot into your old kernel and you should get your X server back.
