Well, after quite a bit of reading at LQ.org and other places, I'm finding that the issue with Nvidia on the newer kernel that I was trying upgrade is being experienced by MANY folks and not just in Slackware. It seems that Nvidia has been a bit remiss in keeping their legacy drivers updated, so there are Xs is crashing all over the place. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be just one common fix, but many work-arounds; some successful, some not.
I guess I'll just keep things as they are (working properly) for the time being. I'll worry about all this Nvidia carp when I do a clean install of the next version of Slack... whenever that comes out.
It is what it is...
