Since the default slh kernel in aptosid dropped needed BKL header files for building the proprietary nvidia kernel driver, it will be necessary to use an alternative until nvidia decides to offer rebuilt linux drivers.

# echo "deb sid main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/frickel.list
# apt-get update 

Search for installed Kernel.

# dpkg -l|grep linux-image 

and remove the meta packages for slh (aptosid)

# apt-get remove linux-headers-2.6-aptosid-amd64 linux-image-2.6-aptosid-amd64

Meanwhile, install the new meta package in order to allow d-u to happen in the future on those too.

# apt-get install linux-image-2.6-frickel-amd64 linux-headers-2.6-frickel-amd64

Reboot into the new kernel, and run smxi again, skip to graphics install and let the nvidia install rebuild/reinstall the kernel module.
After reboot, you can also run the d-u then.
