Description John Haiducek 2016-01-05 13:30:36 EST
Description of problem:
I updated my system, and gdm no longer starts. I am still able to run gnome using the startx command.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.14.2-12.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system

Actual results:
gdm tries to start but displays a generic (graphical) error screen

Expected results:
gdm should display a login prompt

Additional info:

I am using the nvidia driver from elrepo (kmod-nvidia-352.63-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64). 

I found the following in /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log:

X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
