I checked the nvidia forum for "prelink" and came up with only a few
older posts. However on google searching for "prelink nvidia" (no
quotes) returned a bunch. Blacklisting the drivers seem to be the most
common workaround. Yesterday I tried adding the libraries I sent
earlier to prelink.conf, but every time I manually ran a
" /usr/sbin/prelink -av -mR -q" it would still lock up and/or log me out
of X. I added these lines as well to /etc/prelink.conf
And all seems to be well. I'll keep you posted if I have any further
problems. Thanks for the kick ass repo!
