Default Driver has to be reinstalled after reboot

I've got a kubuntu system with a self compiled 2.6.11-2 kernel. The installation with the nVide 1.0-7676 for Linux x86 .run file works as expected (can't find a precompiled version of course, but does compilation afterwards). After installtion kdm starts up without hazzle.
But after reboot the X screen remains blank, though the xorg log file states that the nvidia driver is loaded (also verified by lsmod) and GLX is activated. I have to kill the X lock file, run the NV*.run file and restart kdm - now it's working again.
What could it be that is not persisted by the driver installation?

thanx,
McA

The problem is that ubuntu pré-install a driver. Do a dpkg -l | grep nvidia and remove everything that shows there. Then, go to /etc/init.d/ and remove any file that starts with nv (usually, nvidia-glx, nvglx or nvdriver, something like that). Then reinstall the nvidia driver and reboot. This should work!

Ok, that was it.
The nvidia driver package complained now about missing files (some mesa stuff) at installation, but in general X now comes up at boot.
thanxalot, ivan!
