No problem here in konsole kde 4.2. Is it possible you got a different keyboard driver loaded somehow. I notice nvidia-xconfig creates a xorg.conf with a kbd driver entry, whereas xorg wants to use evdev for keyboards. See if it's something like that.

Signals seem quite broken in 180.35. Best to just ignore this release, and use 180.29 until the next time around.

It appears that 180.35 breaks signals with the xorg-server 1.5.3 and possibly other versions.

The one user that is reporting to have the driver working is running a release candidate of xorg-server 1.6 and so he may not be having any problems. However I have two computers that broke right after I installed this driver version with me not being able to unlock my screen, and then I noticed a lot more breakage after that.

It's broken for me with xorg-server 1.5.993 (1.6 RC3), so that's not the issue. With how bad this bug is, I'm kind of curious how this release ended up marked as stable.

Also be sure to
1. init 3 (or 1 for ubuntu)
2. rmmod -f nvidia
3. ./NVIDIA-old-driver --uninstall
4. check /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/ and /usr/lib for NVIDIA drivers, remove if there.
5. ./NVIDIA-NEW-driver -an
6. init 5 (or 2 for ubuntu)
You now have a clean install.
I occasionally have problems when a driver upgrade leaves stale links and files.

R61, Xorg from git, Xfce desktop environment, Xfce's terminal, started manually - same problem. When I hit Ctrl+C, "^C" sign appears at usual, but application continues to work, "kill application_pid" doesn't help either, only "kill -9 application_pid" stops it.

Tested on ping, paludis, ls -R /. When I use same commands in pure console, without X Server, Ctrl+C works fine.

Same here, can't Ctrl+C/Ctrl+D in any terminal I tried (konsole, xterm, ...) I'm also experiencing the hang on logout, as described in another thread

I'm seeing weird desktop-problems with 180.35 as well. I started a new thread concerning Gnome screensaver not working properly at all.

Default Re: 180.35 breaks terminal

I just want to mention that my system is a Compaq Presario F756NR. With openSUSE 11.1 with kde4, I could not log out with 180.35. The system locked up. Was forced to use the power switch. Based on this experience, I decided not to try with Fedora 10. After downgrading back to 180.29, everything works. I think I will skip this version.
