Hi,

Whenever I execute gnome-control-center I get a crash of the entire X server. I am running latest kernel (3.5.1) and latest nvidia proprietary drivers, F17 x86_64. Happens under gnome and cinnamon.

When I look into /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old there is a backtrace of the crash saying that crash happened in /lib64/libphtread.so.0 (which belongs to glibc package) and "Segmentation fault". I tried searching with no success.

I reinstalled nvidia libs, tried an old kernel, updated glibc from updates-testing. All without success. Please help...

######## UPDATE ##########
I solved the problem by adding
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"

to the "files" section in xorg.conf.

Strangely nvidia-xconf didn't set the paths, and strangely in my old xorg.conf these were missing too, but everything was working fine without them.
