Hi, I'm running ubuntu 12.1, and because of virtualbox update today, my X server crushed - the reason is that nvidia-current was added to dependencies, but on my PC i have only Intel Video card, so after the restart my gnome shell fall back to Classic with Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". because of update-alternatives: Regards,

Replying to frank:

Didn't until 4.2.8 release.

Yes, you are right and I was wrong. Sorry for that. I've replaced the package on the server. The new version of the 32-bit Quantal package is 4.2.8-83877. 'apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade' should fix that problem.
