Default nvidia 6111, gentoo 2.6 kernel problems

Hello,
I've been trying to get the nvidia drivers working, and am having a lot of problems. I initially installed the 6111 driver, which seemed to be locking up X a lot. So, I tried to downgrade to the 5336 driver, and it was giving me the same error I'm about to list. So, I was able to get back to the 6111 driver, and have been living with the daily hang of my system..

Anyway, I changed the CPU speed on my athlon, which apparently caused it to report a different chip model, resulting in my needing to recompile the nvidia kernel driver.

If I recall correctly, I tried to first install the 'official' nvidia kernel driver, and starting getting the below mentioned error message. Then I tried the gentoo package, same driver. Same problem. Then I tried to downgrade (again) to the 5336 driver, mostly the same problem.

What's strange is that sometimes the driver would work right after I compiled it - I could start X and everything. However, when I would reboot the system, it would show these unresolved symbol errors...
I've tried clearing out all the files it seems these installers are putting on the system (libGL.so, libGLcore.so, /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia, plus the X and kernel drivers), but it's still not helping.
Can someone please help me get this working? I'm trapped in windows land until I can get it fixed... Thanks a lot!

Below is my XFree86 log file (minus some probing output so this message is short enough to port).... I didn't include my x config because that was working fine before, I figure it's not the problem.

Thanks!!!

Default Re: nvidia 6111, gentoo 2.6 kernel problems

Hi,

you missed some files in /usr/X11R6
at least this one:
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o remove it.
there are more installer installed files in the /usr/X11R6-subtree that have to be removed!

I hope you learned a lesson: don't use the installer on gentoo.

For your lockups: don't know. You did not say much about your hardware, your configs or the rest.
