Steve asked: The restricted nvidia driver crashes, X crashes or the kernel oopses?

The whole machine freezes, no keyboard no mouse etc, power cycle only way to recover.

Michael suggested trying Envy..
Will give it a go over the w/e.

Dave asked: What version of mythbuntu?
the version that came with Linux Format mag this month.

This was a clean install, I answered install the nvidia driver to the restricted driver question, and it crashed on boot. Booted again from the cd and deleted the xorg.conf and it booted ok. Then used the restricted driver option to install the nvidia driver and it hung on startup when trying to load X.
