Unhappy NVidia graphics drivers -> system crash on shutdown

Hi all,

when using the official NVidia graphics drivers (V. 1.0-6111), everything works fine -- until I try to shutdown my computer. At this point, the system just crashes: it drops to the console, dumps a few registers and hangs. Nothing short of a "hard" reset gets it going again.

I believe that I correctly installed the drivers, as this whole setup used to run smoothly before I upgraded from RH FC1 to FC2 (and, thus, to a 2.6.x kernel).

I found some posts about this problem on google, unfortunately without any helpful answers. On, I did not find anything about this (which might be due to my poor choice of search terms).

Any help -- or pointers to helpful threads on any forum -- would be highly appreciated!

Cheers, MiP

This probably doesn't help any, but I recently installed that same version of driver on a Slackware 10.0 box. Now, every once in awhile when I try to run one of my OpenGL apps, it causes weird things such as:
  • Closing out of other applications like firefox and gaim
  • Rebooting my system
  • Locking up
  • Random segmentation faults
  • Problems with starting other applications, like firefox, or gdm when exitting out of WindowMaker
