Re: [BUG] unable to handle kernel paging request at fa4f6a50 - GeForce 6150LE
OK this seems to be a problem with binutils-gold. Doing this has eliminated the login problem:
# cd /usr/bin
# rm ld
# ln -s ld.bfd ld
(ld had previously been a link to ld.gold.)
After making this change and rebuilding the NVidia kernel module, the bug I posted above is gone. It is still crashing after a minute or two, but at least we're making progress here...
