Default Nvidia driver installation fails on Ubuntu Jaunty

I am using a minimal ubuntu installation for XBMC.

I try to use the same installation method for Jaunty, what I used successfully many times with Hardy and Intrepid.

I have trouble with installing nvidia drivers on a clean install of ubuntu mini.iso + xorg package.
After I installed ubuntu Jaunty, then xorg I can start X by 'startx'.
Looking at Xorg.log it seems that it's running on VESA driver.

After that I download and install nvidia driver by:
Code:
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.19-pkg1.run
During the installation, I receive the below two warning:

Code:
WARNING: You appear to be using a modular X.Org release, but the X library
         installation path, 'X: warning; process set to priority -2 instead of
         requested priority 0
         /usr/lib', reported by `/usr/bin/X -showDefaultLibPath` does not
         exist.  Please check your X.Org installation.
Code:
WARNING: You appear to be using a modular X.Org release, but the X module installation path, 'X: warning; process set to priority -2
           instead of requested priority 0
           /usr/lib/xorg/modules', reported by `/usr/bin/X -showDefaultModulePath` does not exist.  Please check your X.Org installation.
Apart from that, installation of the driver seems to complete succesfully.

But then, after try to run X, by 'startx' it fails to start. Seems not finding nvidia module.
Xorg.log is here:

As I mentioned in the begining, this was fine formerly on both Hardy and Intrepid.
Unfortunetly others were reported to work also on Jaunty with exactly the same steps, so I don't know what can be the culprit.

I am using ASUS P5N7A-VM with nvidia 9000 integrated.

Does anybody has any similar experience?

Thanks in advance!
