One of my favorite games, "Wolfenstein Enemy Territory", has stopped working lately. It throws a segfault during the initialization phase.

I suspect that the reason is a recent update to the video card driver. The problem started after I updated Ubuntu but I do not remember if there was a driver update in the list.

My question is how can I check this. How can I view the current version of the display driver installed and the date it was last updated?

If I discover that this is indeed the problem, will it be possible to revert the update and stay with the previous version of the driver?
