I've no real code-based ideas but I'd say you have far too many toys in
your toybox. On f13 my upgrade from 260.19.21 to 260.19.29 was entirely
painless: IIRC I just installed nvidia-graphics-260.19.29 (using smart,
which pulled in the other new packages) and rebooted. I now have the
generic graphics, graphics-devices and graphics-helpers installed,
together with the three packages specific for 260.19.21 and those for
260.19.19. I would expect to be able to switch between the versions now
using nvidia-graphics-switch - but I haven't tried it :-).
Do you really need all the other packages?
