I found the problem. I didn't create all the devices. I had created nvidia1 through 7, but didn't make nvidia0. It works fine now.
So for c00lr4c3r, I would suggest he rerun the NVIDIA_kernel make install again as root and make sure everything completes. There is a shell script that is supposed to execute in make install that creates all the /dev/nvidia* files.
How do you manually make those dev's or how do you run the script?? I have the same problem with My NVidia driver and amm hoping that may fix it....
