Could you please help me understand why nvidia drivers are not ok anymore for me since a few versions ? Is this harware, kde, X, driver, kernel ?
After upgrade with version 260.19.29 i have a floating point exception when booting (i'm always using nvidia file, x86 last .run, and install it from init 3 ).
This problem for me is since 256.53 version of nvidia driver , i keep on installing new driver, install seems ok but after reboot (shutdown -r now) i have a floating point exception with a black screen and an error message that i can't close, so i need to close session and go back to ctrl/alt/F1 console and then to init 3 to reinstall my "old" version (256.53 .run) ; which i kept handy in a secret place
(btw i've been told it's a known issue since kde 4.5 and ok with kde 4.4.4 (??) and also that kde 4.6 rc1 works ok ... )
