Default Computer Freezes (REDHAt 7.3) UPON INSTALLING NEW NVIDIA 5336-pkg#1 ans pkg#0 driver

Hi there,

Since some of the softwares I run need OpenGL support, and since my graphics card was a NVIDIA product, I installed the new driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1) first and then a little older driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg0).

Installation was correct except that it couldnt find a precompiled kernel or something like that (I am a LINUX newbie, so please excuse my wording), but it worked fine.

When I started the x-window, it started fine but after a few minutes hung up and I couldnt do anything other than restart the entire system. Only the mouse can be moved but everything else is frozen.

I restarted the system around 5 times and each times I faced the same problem after logging into the x-window.

I would appreciate your advise as to how to get around this.

Best regards,

I too have experienced this problem when I upgraded my drivers to 5336 at the advice of tunderbird but then my system locks up soon after starting X. I went back to the older version (see my post: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=27073 ) where I was only having problems playing video. Does any one have any suggestions? Be specific as I (and pkar) am fairly new to linux.
