FC3 nvidia logout crash
 
I have used FC2 and now FC3, and I install the Nvidia drivers from their website (Not the livna.org ones), and everything works well - the X server starts up, nice and fast, and openGL works great. However, when I logout of X, or reboot directly from X, then the system freezes up. All of the correct options are edited into xorg.conf, and it has worked before, all the way from RH8.0, and worked just fine with FC1, but with FC2 and FC3, this problems occurs. X works fine, both starting and exiting, when I use "nv" and not "nvidia". Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and btw, I got an error about "rivafb" when installing the NVidia drivers on FC3, but the kernel does not load them up, and the Nvidia driver works fine until I quit X or reboot, so I do not think rivafb has anything to do with this. big_wierd_al@hotmail.com

Please post your xorg.conf file.
Also, what version nvidia driver are you using?

There is a bug with the newest Nvidia driver and FC3. Check this link out.

xorg.conf
 
Using latest Nvidia drivers 1.0-6629. Absolutely no problems loading X, only problems when I exit it.

Are you sure you are supposed to spell it "Moniter" in my xorg.conf file, I spell it "Monitor".

Thank you for pointing that out, that section never worked, that must be why :) However, that will not fix my current problem. I will change that though.
