The opensource drivers of nvidia (nouveau) are kind of special those
days. The tight combination of kernel with userspace is a very sucky
situation. :-/

I don't want to waste too much time with providing the *-driver
packages for the binary kernel modules and therefore users should
grab the according kernel-source packages whenever they want them
and just build the kernel modules against
linux-headers-2.6.33-grml[64] using module-assistant on their own.
