Right, i was using this driver release for weeks.
for more information on why the NVIDIA kernel module couldn't be initialized, please see the output of `dmesg` right after a failed attempt to start X.

Jan 21 21:03:08 david kernel: pid 1333 (Xorg), uid 0: exited on signal 6
Dmesg did not log anything else.

Thanks for your help.
