    these issues have been resovlved - the apt-get nvidida-drivers while this does install the correct drivers - a new xconf needs to be generated and the tool listed on this site (cant remember what it is ) does not work. if you donwload the drivers direct NVidia has its own installer that will build your Xconf for you.
