Re: Black screen + segfault if glx is enabled
Does this problem persist if you install the official NVIDIA driver package?

Re: Black screen + segfault if glx is enabled
This is a kernel incompatibilty issue which has been discussed in several other threads in the past. I'd suggest searching on 'autoconf.h' for workarounds.
