Yeah I'm using ATrpms 9755. In fact lately the only repo I leave 
permanently enabled on my myth boxes is ATrpms. I ran into some trouble 
with a freshrpms or livna x264 package screwing up my mytharchive. So 
now-a-days I do an --enablerepo for the few packages I can't get off 

Anyhoo, my symptons are as follows:
-- with X running on the nvidia 9755 module and kernel 2.6.21-1.3194 as 
soon as I start mythfrontend the X server crashes and I'm brought back 
to a GDM login.
-- with X running on the nv module mythfrontend starts but looks like 
its in 8 colors. Then when I exit myth X restarts.
-- with X running on the nvidia module and Xinerama enabled, 
mythfrontend segfaults... (I'm not really sure if myth CAN run with 
Xinerama enabled, never tried, but this particular frontend is a dual 
monitor machine in a spare room.)

It's possible none of that is related to the kernel bug mentioned in 
this thread, but I kind of gave up trouble shooting it until a new 
kernel is released. Been patiently waiting for that to happen for a 
little over a week now.
