Sorry to hear it still didn't work out... But we're not giving up yet, are we?
My guess is that the device name nvidia0 is incorrect or not into place, or that the PCI location is not right.
I dug this one up for you: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...module-293198/
A couple of suggestions:
- List available deviced with "ls -hal /dev/nvidia*" and "ls -hal /dev/device*"
- Take a look at the output of "cat /dev/nvidia0" if it's there
- Try loading the Nvidia module manually with "modprobe nvidia"
For the record, are you using a distro package or a downloaded installer? Have you tried redownloading it or did you check the md5sum?
