Default Ubuntu 10.04 can not logout after installing Nvidia Driver

Guys, I installed nvidia driver from here [http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...3-driver.html] to my ubuntu 10.04.3. Installation ran successfully but until now I cannot log out my laptop. When I logged out, it dimmed several times and finally gone black screen. It seemed there was a dialogue telling an error (not readable) in the screen. I had to push the power button to shut my notebook down. My laptop is Asus A43S, Core i5 2.3 GHz, 2 GB Ram, and Nvidia Geforce 540M. Is there any solution for this? I had reinstalled the nvidia driver and GDM but it didn't work. Any reply is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Ubuntu 10.04 can not logout after installing Nvidia Driver

This sounds like an issue has been reported by many other users (gnome-session and gnome-settings-daemon processes refuse to terminate and use 100% of the CPU); see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=164619 and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=164775

The only real solution at the moment appears to be to use driver version 275.09.07 or older.

A possible workaround is to set __GL_NO_DSO_FINALIZER="1", but that has some downsides (e.g. it causes some programs to segfault).

Some people have also reported success by rebuilding cairo with different configure options.
