Default amd64 with 7800GTX, 2.6.13, and 1.0.7676 not working

I'm using debian linux amd64 unstable tree with xorg. when X loads. it gives an "No devices detected" error. I've compiled my own kernel (2.6.13) and the nvidia driver as I always do. in the kernel I've added pci-express as a static part of the kernel. the nvidia module loads with no errors and I make sure with lsmod it's running before X is started. the video card does show up as a 7800 GTX under /proc so the module is working right, but not when X is loading.

any ideas what I can do?

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
The NVIDIA installer shipped with current NVIDIA driver releases assumes that Linux/x86-64 specific libraries are kept in /usr/lib64, ..., /usr/X11R6/lib64 - a convention followed by most vendors, but not by Debian GNU/Linux. Please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...74&postcount=7 for a replacement `nvidia-installer` binary that works around this problem.

Thanks! problem solved. I learned the latest quirk about debian amd64 lol. I would also like to say thank you if your the same zander that ran minion.de in the past, those patches really helped!
