Default Mandrake 9/NVidia failed allocation

Haven't found any references elsewhere to the same problem: on installing the drivers from the tar.gz files and setting up XF86Config-4 as directed, I'm getting the following errors in /var/log/messages:

Oct 13 04:12:45 endor kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1d2/0)
VM: killing process kdeinit

Getting a large number of similar errors, and the overall result is that X is failing to start.

Any suggestions for how to fix this problem, or failing that, revert to the old drivers that worked before?

How much memory do you have? How big is your Linux swap partition? That might be a message from the OOM killer...

(The OOM killer is the piece of the kernel that starts killing processes when you run out of virtual memory. Virtual memory is real memory + swap space)

768MB of memory and a roughly comparable amount of swap space. Upgrading version 9.0 to itself seems to have mysteriously fixed the problem, though, and the drivers now work fine - it's great to see my TuxRacer FPS go from 0 to infinite.
