Angry 71.86.11 drivers in Ubuntu 9.x with TNT2 M64, no way!


I'm tired reading tutorials, threads on forums and the torah. I've tried the nvidia included drivers in Ubuntu 9.04 and Xubuntu 9.10, the nvidia-glx-71. No way.

I've tried too the official ones here, 71.86.11, same result.

Finally I got the same error, with the xorg.conf generated by nvidia-xconfig (last version), with kernel 2.6.28-11.generic:

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers// undefined symbol: AllocateScreenPrivateIndex
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available.
So X doesn't start. I think it's an issue with the kernel, so is there any kernel with is 100% compatible with those drivers? (i mean 100%, not 99,9%). The machine is a Celeron 366 Slot 1, 384 MB RAM, mainboard ASUS p2-99b (bios updated on '99, the latest).

I've tested with the nvidia-embedded, the nvidia official and both of them. If not's a matter with the kernel, what's the matter? Every minute I don't receive an answer, got kills a kitten. Think about it. Without the official drivers the TNT2 is faster as a f'n s3 virge pci. And the Celeron is getting older, let the GPU work a little, please.

PS: <- awesome lol

The xorg.log is attached.
