Unhappy can't modprobe nvidia [Resolved] but now i've a blank screen on startx

Kernel 2.6 (gentoo)

1.0.5336 nvidia drivers

when i modprobe nvidia, i've got this error :

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.1-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

here my dmesg contents :

nvidia: no version magic, tainting kernel.
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_add
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_destroy
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_remove
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_create

any ideas ?

PS : i'd looked on the forum, but can't find a solution to my problem.
