Think you still missed the point, the update didn't trash your nVIDIA
install.. it 'corrected' your Mesa install (that nVIDIA had trashed).
In the future, use livna.org's packaged nVIDIA driver which relocates
the libraries in a sane location.. and stops blasting the Mesa libraries
to hell.. then this shouldn't be a problem anymore.
