Updates killed my XBMC live install
I'm running one of the Acer 1600's with the Atom/Ion combo. I've had XBMC Live running great for a few weeks now. Tonight I went into Programs and started running some scripts to see what all I could add to it, and I logged into it via ssh and did an apt-get upgrade. While running the Apple Trailer script the system locked up. I rebooted and now I get the message "XBMC needs hardware accelerated OpenGL rendering. Install an appropriate graphics driver."

I've checked /etc/X11 and nothing has changed there this month. The nvidia driver appears to be loaded. I have no idea how to check the version or status of that. I'm running 9.11 and I believe I have the latest installed, but I have no idea how to confirm this. I used the latest live install to set this up and installed it to the hard drive using the automated process.

apt-get did update some xorg stuff, xserver-common and xserver-xorg-core

Found this in the xorg log file
