Default It worked before, but not any more...

DFI 790FX MB, @GB RAM, +5400 CPU, Relaxed timing...

Kernel (G2) version 2.6.25r4 with nvidia current drivers (virtually any one) worked great.

Updated kernel (with very same .config file) to version 2.6.26r1
And now _any_ nvidia driver/X server fails to load with error opening /dev/nvidia0;

kernel report:

[ 74.466498] NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory.
[ 74.466718] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x30:0xffffffff:898)
[ 74.466732] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

X server report:
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

(II) Module "ramdac" already built-in
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/output error).
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please see the COMMON PROBLEMS section in the README for
(EE) NVIDIA(0): additional information.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Re-booting with kernel 2.6.25r4 fails to load because install script linked new kernel.
Re-installing nvidia drivers causes the same problem to occur with 2.6.25r4 (which
worked perfectly until the re-install of the nvidia driver was attempted unser 2.6.26r1.

I tried both using 'emerge' and just running the sh-archive/script - same result.

I failed to debug further as rm_init_adapter() appears to be part of the binary.
I am also loosing my eye-sight and any extended screen viewing is very difficult and

Please help...
