Re: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko and can't find my NVIDIA card?
Roman, are you using the 2.6.32-5 kernel? I've just confirmed by installing 2.6.32-5 on my Debian/sid system (I had been booting my own kernel and hadn't noticed the 2.6.32-5 update) that Debian is indeed now including the nouveau driver and doing a KMS by default, which would lead to exactly the bug that Ant is describing. I also confirmed that adding "nouveau.modeset=0" to the kernel's boot options is sufficient.
Ant, the nvidia-installer will work over SSH fine.
Edit: I re-read Roman's post and saw that he is using 2.6.32-5. I'm sure the package he installed does something to disable Nouveau, since Nouveau is indeed included in Debian's 2.6.32-5 kernel.
