Default Nvidia issues SOLVED by disabling gdm

Hello, all:

After much head bashing, I decided to try starting X using 'startx',
bypassing gdm. My nvidia card is now working splendidly with the
195.36.03 beta driver, which I installed using the nvidia installer
(as that seems to be the easiest way to ensure I have 32-bit
compatible OpenGL libraries, which Google Earth requires). Maybe I
should file a bug against gdm for apparent (although not invariable)
incompatibility with nvidia drivers?

It isn't the WM that's the problem - I'm still using GNOME. I might
try xdm, though.
