cudaminer freezes Linux Mint taints kernel

When running cudaminer once it tries to initialize the card the entire screen freezes. The computer itself is still running but the Xorg is done for, you cannot even switch to another console window and must reboot (even an mdm or Xorg restart does not help).

At first cudaminer will give you these errors:

stratrum_recv_line failed

...retry after 15 seconds

GPU #0: Geforce 210 with compute capability 1.2

GPU#0: interactive: 1, text-cache:0 single-alloc:0

GPU #0: 32 hash / 4.0MB per warp.

Once GPU#0 shows up the screen freezes and you can check the kern log and see the following driver tainting issues
