Default nvidia driver cause applications segmentation-fault

Hi to everyone,
yesterday i've installed the Nvidia drivers (7676,7174)...

It works fine, glxgears works about 500 fps but when i restart the pc i have some problems:

Some applications like Xmms, Mplayer and kino doesn't start with error "segmentation fault".

When I've removed the nvidia module and used "nv" module in Xorg.conf all worked fine.

SO is ubuntu Hoary 5.04 Nvidia is GeForce 440

Can anyone help me?

Default Re: nvidia driver cause applications segmentation-fault

Ok i'm helped myself

the solution is quick simply

With this comand install the modules precompiled for kernel 2.6.10.5 in ubuntu hoary 5.04

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

To modify the xorg.conf file with "nvidia" module and create a backup file of xorg.conf type:

$ nvidia-glx-config enable

If you want, you can install the nvidia settings panel with the command:

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings


P.S. The cursor shadow option still not work....
P.S:2 thanx to OpenSkills Team http://openskills.info/infobox.php?ID=1240

bolo,
Where did you obtain the nvidia driver that you were using when the segfaults were happening?

thanks,

For the 7676 version, here
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7676.html

For the 7174 version, here
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7174.html

I launch the .run file and the driver go up, I restart X and all go! But at the next startup some applications (like glxgears too!) don't work (segmentation fault)
