Default Black Screen / Crashes after rpmfusion nVidia ver 260.19.36

I'm running the binary nVidia driver from rpmfusion.org. It has worked
well historically, but the latest update (Feb 13, 2011) seems to have
broken things.

I recently updated from a fully functional 260.19.29 installation to
260.19.36. Now, things don't work. Using an nVidia GeForce GT 220
card, I get a black
screen (and system crash) when X starts. Using a GeForce 8400 GS (in
the same system) is a little better: X runs for a few minutes (2-18,
depending on how
lucky I am) until the whole system locks up. When I say crash or
locked up, I mean it; I can't log in via ssh, and existing ssh
sessions hang.

Details:
* Fully patched (as of Feb 13, 2011) Fedora 14 system
* Worked fine until "yum update" of 260.19.36 nvidia code
* i7-950 CPU on Asus P6T Deluxe motherboard. 12 GB RAM.
* Normally use a GeForce GT 220 card, but I have an old 8400 GS which
I can use for testing.

As part of my troubleshooting steps, I "yum remove"ed all of the
*nvidia* packages. Then, reinstalled them. I'm getting the same
problem.

I've got all the details here:
https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1630 I'm not sure what
is the most appropriate place to post this issue.

This list is the first place I looked to see if anyone else is having
this problem. I'm hoping that I can save someone else some
frustration!

Thanks,

MJ

The most appropriate place would be the RPMFusion mailing list and not
the general Fedora mailing list since binary drivers will not be
supported here. But to answer your main question, I'm using the same
drivers on both a Nvidia GTS450 and 8400GS without issue.
