Default Re: 7676 probs!

mvibe,
modprobe isn't complaining about the location or existence of the nvidia kernel module, its complaining about the lack of the nvidia device(s) or videocard:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 0 Aug 14 14:15 /dev/nvidia0
crw------- 1 netllama root 195, 255 Aug 14 14:15 /dev/nvidiactl

Are you using a static /dev/ hierarchy, devfs or udev? Also, there shouldn't normally be a need to modprobe the nvidia module manually, as it should be auto loaded when starting X.

Please run 'startx' and if it fails, please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log for review.

Thanks,
Lonni
