Bug Description

After the upgrading from Karmic to Lucid (with todays alternate built) jockey failed to start, and the proprietary driver wasn't correctly loaded.

I've been doing this procedure since week one of the testing program [1] and never had a problem with the upgrade test, but I wanted to point out that when installing today (for the other tests) I encounter bug #562226, and this one might be related in some way.

I re tested and this time bug #562226 wasn't present during installation, and jockey still crashes

Can you attach the new /var/log/jockey.log after reproducing the error, please?

I did a new upgrade test today (with yesterday's daily build) and same error, here's the jockey log file.
If it helps, I filled another bug report (bug #568041) because the nVidia driver was removed after the xpr-007 test case[1] (I'm beginning to think that they are the same bug).
