X-Server Crashes When 9629 is installed
1 Attachment(s)
These issues began to happen immediately after I updated to the latest Vanilla kernel, 2.6.18-2835 AND to a recently compiled custom kernel which is identical to the vanilla one.

1) It begins when I first install the 9629 driver, and then shutdown. Upon a cold start, that's when the X-server boots into init 3 mode, instead of initiating an X-server startup.

2) The only workaround is when it boots into command line mode, I type "init 3; init 5" then the X-server exhibits the NVIDIA splashscreen, and all is well after that.

3) I've managed to edit and re-edit Xorg.conf to no avail. Even so much as to re-install the driver. But no matter what I do, the X-server will NOT perform a clean boot up on a cold start. Hopefully, this nagging issue can be solved :(

Edit: The KMOD NVIDIA solution from Livna works fine. I may have to revert to the stock kernel and re-install the KMOD drivers again if there is no solution to these issues.

All of what you described here is an FC6 issue, and is not an nvidia driver bug.

OK then, I can just as well revert to the open source driver; go back to FC5; or re-install the in-the-box FC6 kernel and yum the kmod-nvidia drivers.

No real biggie :)

Thanks for your help though :)
