Yep!
Was in today's updates.

I updated to Nvidia 260 from Nvidia 195, using the Liquorix 2.6.37-4.dmz.1 kernel was seamless. There seem to be problems with the new Liquorix 2.6.38-1 kernel and Nvidia from what I have read, and from personal experience. When trying to update to 2.6.38-1, Nvidia 195 crashed on me. (BSOD). I am keeping to the 2.6.37-4 kernel till I find a fix.

Thanks for the tip.
It wasn't offered in "updates"? But it was sitting there in synaptic. I downloaded it just now and it worked just fine with the new Nvidia 260 driver. :)

The 260 driver is there, but the 260 nvidia-kernel package isnt in testing yet.
