I uninstalled every linux-restricted and nvidia releated

my xorg.0.log reported " ERR: API mismatch: NVIDIA kernel module is version 1.0.7667 but this X module is version 1.0.8178.", that's when I realized I had tu uninstall all the restricted crap...

igor@ubuntu:~/nvdownloads$ sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package nvidia-glx is not installed, so not removed
Package linux-restricted-modules-2.6.12-10-amd64-k8 is not installed, so not removed
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
The problem I'm haveing is that something is missing from the booting configuration, because when I install 8178 and run startx it works, and the next reboot it won't. But I don't know what it is. Please if you got any hints let me know.

And when I try to re-install 6629 (latest stable for me) I get "ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module."
