Everything was peachy until last night when I updated some packages with aptitude (logs pasted below). I've been using the xorg-edgers PPA for a long time with the latest nvidia drivers, so I figured there was something broken in there.
After last week delivering a 21-way graphics card comparison on Linux using the open-source Intel, Radeon, and NVIDIA (Nouveau) graphics drivers, this week at Phoronix we have a 27-way graphics card.

I am running Kubuntu 13.10 64 bit. I have an nVidia GT520 based graphics card in my HP xw8600 workstation. I have installed the nVidia drivers for a long time. But there have been some changes done to the drivers that you should know about.
