Sorry for letting this bug rotten for so long. I am sorry that we cannot help
users of the binary-only drivers like the nvidia one. Could you confirm to us,
that you are able to reproduce this problem with the current upgraded Fedora
using only open source drivers? For the information how to clean all remains of
binary drivers, please, take a look at

In case, you don't want to do it (or you are not able to reproduce with open
source drivers, and don't want to switch to them), Nvidia provides indirect
customer support via an online web based support forum.  Nvidia monitors these
web forums for commonly reported problems and passes them on to Nvidia engineers
for investigation.  Once they've isolated a particular problem, it is often
fixed in a future video driver update.

The NVNews Nvidia Linux driver forum is located at:


Once you have reported this issue in the Nvidia web forums, others who may have
experienced the particular problem may be able to assist.  If there is a real
bug occuring, Nvidia will be able to determine this, and will likely resolve the
issue in a future driver update for the operating system releases that they
officially support.

While Red Hat does not support the proprietary nvidia driver, users requiring
technical support may also find the various X.Org, XFree86, and Red Hat mailing
lists helpful in finding assistance:
