such a major one that Mint might want to hold off on release until this is fixed/worked around e.g. by including older xorg or driver?
there are loads of reports of nvidia problems with maverick if you google.
maybe try nvidia 256.x driver, seems 260.x with latest xorg may be the problem.
i don't know but i'm about to roll out on an all-nvidia network so i care.
amazing, how each ubuntu release has some major disaster like this?
edit: what i don't understand is why nouvou driver isn't working, did you first get a good boot on nouvou, then install nvidia, then dead?
No, didn't even get a first boot on either Mint 10 or Ubuntu 10.10
And yes you are right the amount of people having this issue is great. Hope they fix it soon.
