Default Re: Unable to install Nvidia driver on 9500M + Ubuntu

I can confirm 100% it's not just Ubuntu or the 2.6.24 kernel for that matter.

Code:
# cat /proc/version 
Linux version 2.6.25.3-18.fc9.x86_64 (mockbuild@) (gcc version 4.3.0 20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Tue May 13 04:54:47 EDT 2008
After installing from the Fedora 9 CD it insisted on doing an update, including a kernel update I let this go through then installed the kernel-devel package etc, however the error message is more or less identical:

Code:
warning: process `nvidia-installe' used the deprecated sysctl system call with 1.23.
warning: process `nvidia-installe' used the deprecated sysctl system call with 1.23.
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
NVRM: This PCI I/O region assigned to your NVIDIA device is invalid:
NVRM: BAR1 is 256M @ 0x00000000 (PCI:0001:00.0)
NVRM: This is a 64-bit BAR mapped above 4GB by the system BIOS or
NVRM: Linux kernel. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver and other
NVRM: system software do not currently support this configuration
NVRM: reliably.
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!
warning: process `nvidia-installe' used the deprecated sysctl system call with 1.23.
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled
At which point the nvidia installer halts, I didn't try this with only 2G of ram as I figured it would work just fine, although the nv driver works, so those having trouble with it might want to try doing what I'm about to and upgrade to the next Ubuntu version to get a newer nv/kernel etc versions if available.
