Description of problem:
Although the the latest NVIDIA video driver works fine against the Phoebe
kernel, enabling the GLX modeule from NVIDIA causes X to Seg fault with signal 11.
This is probably a problem that NVIDIA should solve, but maybe they will listen
to somebody from Redhat and do something quicker than if they got it from me
The module worked fine under 7.3. I did not change any of my X settings since
upgrading other than rebuilding the nvidia kernel module and GLX.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get latest NVIDIA source and GLX modules and rebuld them from source rpm
2. Add GLX to modules
3. Start X
Actual Results: The last line in the XFree86 log is "Loading GLX module"
Then the server aborts with a Sementation fault (signal 11)
Expected Results: X should not of aborted
System was upgraded from RH 7.3 to Phoebe.
