Unhappy OpenGL crashing 2868?


I did a "yum -y upgrade" on a fresh FC6 and the kernel was upgraded to 2.6.18-1.2868.fc6.i686. Then I installed the 9631 kernel mode drivers for my nVidia GeForce Go 6800. Now whenever anything tries access OpenGL, X restarts... If I boot up off the old kernel (2849, also using the 9631 nVidia drivers) no problems. Anyone have any ideas?

BTW, I am getting the nVidia drivers from ATRPMS via yum, perhaps that's the problem?

I found this in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

it's seems like your driver from your package doesn't install correctly
