Default Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis

I tried 8776 + patch: it builds okay, but doesn't work.

In xorg.0.log it reports:
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidiactl (No such device or address)
NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
I'm not sure what the output of lsmod should look like, but I don't think this is correct (shouldn't "nvidia" be listed?):
$ lsmod | grep nv
nvidia_agp  9500  1
agpgart  35400  1  nvidia_agp
I checked that the devices were created:
$ ls -l /dev/nv*
crw-rw---- 1 root video 195,     0 2007-05-13 14:26 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 2007-05-13 14:26 /dev/nvidiactl
