Unhappy 180.18 still no X server!

Hi,

Ok so given 180.* another go. I'm currently stuck at 177.82. I have been installing from the latest beta's up until this point, so am familiar with the routine: "#> sh NVIDIA[stuff].sh "

With 180.* however, I've been unable to have any success.It simply boots my machine, and then before the nvidia beta flash screen appears, just blank screen, then I can hear my fan on my graphics card working harder than normal Unfortuntely, I cannot Alt+Ctrl+F2 or Alt+Ctrl+F6 to get a bug report, or see what's going on. I have to hard reboot my machine.

It's quite annoying as I'm wanting to use KDE4 as it was designed. I felt the need to write in my blog about it even! check it out here:
Nvidia GForce, not KForce

My machine details
--------------------------

Fedora 10 x86_64 (running from stable fedora repositories)
AMD X2 6000+ 64bit
4gb memory
Geforce 9500GT
dual monitor setup

thanks.

OK so when I:

># init 3
># sh NVIDIA[stuf].sh --uninstall
># sh NVIDIA[new driver].sh

What am I missing? What does the "--uninstall" not... uninstall?

thanks.
