After the update of kernel 3.5.0-18 was issued adn I rebooted, my installation didnt work as nvidia.ko was not build

I needed to install the headers manually and then it was "ok" though compiz acted unstable in the first minute.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-18
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-18-generic
sudo depmod -a
sudo modprobe nvidia
sudo /etc/init.d/*dm restart

Anyway - I never ever had so many problems with nvidia_current as with 12.10
On initial installation I had to install the build-essentials manually to get nvidia_current running
Ubuntu must have killed all quality control employees - what is wrong with you!
