Default GT220 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Driver : Unable to load kernel module

I have a problem with driver installation whatever the protocol choice and driver version.

First protocol : I used the driver manager give by Ubuntu and the installation success. But after reboot, an error message appear and say :
"Failed to initialized the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log..."

So I try a manual installation. An after compilation success, another message error appear and say :
"Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s)."

Notice that I stop the X server to do this installation.
You have the enclose file log in this message.

Do you have any explanations ?
Yours Sincerely.
