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.
