Exclamation [gt555m(0deb)] Won't work in Ubuntu 11.10

Hello. I use Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop Lenovo Y570 and have trouble with activating discrete video card nvidia gt555m(01:00.0 0300: 10de:0deb (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])). When I install official driver from Nvidia download page(, and run it from bumblebee (application for switching between two video cards) I get error:

But my video card supported in last drivers -
