It worked fine.
I soon installed the Liquorix kernel to solve my problem of not being able to suspend or hibernate, that worked well also.
Now Liquorix had LOTS of updates to its kernel. I will guess I have have had about 10 upgrades to Liquorix since last Dec.
All worked perfectly with Nvidia automatically recompiling through dkms.
Also had several (4-5?) Nvidia upgrades, again all went automatically and went well.
Never had a problem.... Until a few days ago.
I upgraded from Liquorix 2.6.39-3 to 2.6.39-4
I booted back into the 2.6.39-3 kernel...all was fine.
I thought I would wait for a new kernel upgrade to try again, but feeling experimental I went into the "SID" repo today and downloaded the new Debian 3.0.0-1 (image and headers).

Boots to prompt
I forget the exact message, but something like "...Fatal server error.."
After many successful kernel upgrades why this sudden problem?
I am happy with my current functioning kernel (liquorix 2.6.39-3), but I will want to upgrade in the future.
I am thinking I would have to delete (or edit) my xorg.conf (nvidia), so I can boot back in Nouveau (or VESA), and then reload Nvidia??
Is this the case?
Also , any Idea why this would break now after so many sucessful kernel AND driver upgrades?
