I am having a strange problem with the Opensuse 11.2 Xorg server.
Graphics hardware is Nvidia Quadro FX-5000, driver is ver 190.53.
90% of the time, I am getting a seg violation from the Xserver on trying to login via kdm:
0: /usr/bin/Xorg(xorg_backtrace+0x26) [0x4ef6f6]
1: /usr/bin/Xorg(xf86SigHandler+0x6f) [0x48942f]

11: /usr/bin/Xorg [0x432de9]
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
…is the error that is present in the “kdm.log” file.
So far, it doesn’t seem to be user dependent (happens either as root or joe random user,)
Again, so far, it only seems to happen with “driver nvidia” enabled in the config file, not with “driver nv”
The failure occurs shortly after hitting return on the login screen. After it fails, it starts up a new Xserver, and presents a new login screen. Repeated attempts seem to eventually succeed, but 90% of the time, it fails
I strongly suspect the Nvidia driver, but I have not been able to find anything documenting any similar problems.
Has anyone seen anything similar???
