Default Re: Nvidia driver + Linux = error or black screen

This error is irrelevant - I have one too and live.

Whats more important, do you try installing nVidia driver while X server is still running and nouveu module is loaded? How unwise...

Reboot to recovery mode and install it from there (and configure xorg.conf with installer tools when prompted - unless you have your own good xorg.conf for nVidia).

And there is error for kernel sources configuration that's no good and need to be fixed.
Did you installed kernel-headers?
Did you followed sticky thread?
sudo apt-get build-dep nvidia-graphics-drivers
