I 'm using the NVIDIA proprietory driver, installed by running NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.31-pkg1.run Why? Because VariCad only runs properly using these drivers. The problem is that after booting with a new kernel, there's obviously no NVIDIA driver present for the new kernel. What used to happen is that it would fail to start X then I could ctrl-alt-F2 to a console login (HowTos)
