Hi, are you sure you wanted to post this to this mailing list? I think you have to report this problem to Nvidia directly. As a workaround I suggest that you switch to the generic Nvidia driver "nv" supplied by the Xserver. This should work but unfortunally you do not have the fancy desktop effects :(

I installed the new 11.2 kernel update yesterday (188.8.131.52-0.1-desktop) from the updater applet. A went well until I shutdown the system. I'm using the nvidia-drivers:
The system failed to shutdown. Not sure its related to Nvidia. Today when I started up I got a black screen when trying to start runlevel 5. rebooted in failsafe mode, uninstalled the Nvidia driver, then ran the install script. I had to run nvidia-config before the Nvidia X server setup icon would work. Original told me Nvidia not installed even though there was an xconfig file there that contained nvidia.
I have attached the install log from today. Note there are some non-compatible pointer types called out. But everything appears to be working. If you need bug report or don't get attachment let me know.
I'll check the shutdown problem and see if still exists.
Actually turns out the shutdown has nothing to do with Nvidia. It seperate bug in new kernel. (Bugzilla 578222). I was answering a request for people to test 2.6.31 with Nvidia drivers. The Nvidia driver seems to be working fine with 11.2 new kernel and also with 11.3 MS1.
Thanks for your response.
