Default Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.


I have a problem with Nvidia Go 6100 and nvidia driver - the driver wont load. Xorg.0.log:

(EE) Jul 26 11:05:50 NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
(EE) Jul 26 11:05:50 NVIDIA(0):     system's kernel log for additional error messages and
(EE) Jul 26 11:05:50 NVIDIA(0):     consult the NVIDIA README for details
README says to look for lines preceded by "NVRM" in dmesg or /var/log/messages, but it does not contain some error.

Module seems to be loaded:

# kldstat -v |fgrep nvidia
                55 pci/ata_nvidia
                210 hostb/agp_nvidia
13    1 0xcbb3f000 946000   nvidia.ko (/boot/modules/nvidia.ko)
Versions used:

FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE i386
I tried to wipe out /usr/src, rebuild world and kernel and the driver but it didn't help.

My kernel config:

# sed -e 's/#.*//' /sys/i386/conf/CHT0N-8 | uniq

This problem started after some upgrade, maybe upgrade of xorg-server, but I don't remember any more. Have you please any idea where to start?
