Exclamation Need to install NVIDIA driver each boot (Man)drake 10.1 + GEFORCE 6600 + Xorg 6.8.1

Hello

Because the NVIDIA driver 1.0-6629-pkg2 didn't work properly (without Swcursor = 1 and NoRenderExtension = 1 / and need to install each boot) i decided to patch the Xorg 6.8.1 and to build/install it.

I install NVIDIA driver (1.0-6629) and change my xorg.conf (Swcursor = 0 and NoRenderExtension = 0)
I do a startx and see it's running fine.

I reboot my computer and X can't start ; i need to install an other time the driver to do it


Look at the Xorg log file just after a reboot :


(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 16, (--) framebuffer bpp 16
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 565
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "SWcursor" "0"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NoRenderExtension" "0"
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xB0000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xC0000000
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found


My xorg.conf :
