Some problem, this time with 2 nvidia cards. Tried just to see if it works. Attached info collected with apport-collect.

I think that this bug is a duplicate from #577997 : switching users on 10.04 with latest nvidia drivers leads to a freeze. This problem is linked to the use of the nvidia drivers.

Alen (cshadow) wrote :

I don't think so. For me it was a duplicate of 502237 and solved it as described.

This is an ancient bug for an unsupported release. I'm closing. Please do feel free to open a new bug if this affects anyone on a more recent version (12.04, 12.10, 13.04)
