X starting but then quitting on Nvidia

    There has been a long learning curve on the Nvidia video device(s) 
in Linux and it appears the best Linux drivers provided to us are not 
well tested. In my case I find if there is a splash added to the kernel 
list Nvidia will not start reliably.

    Of late I have had to boot using the emergency kernel which has no 
splash in the kernel line. That always works. But the normal boot up 
fails more and more often.

    So I deleted the splash in the main kernel and now it works fine too.
