Default GeForce 7025 / Nforce 630a : Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device...

I am trying to setup my new Abit AN-M2 nView (7025/630a), I am trying to use CentOS 5, at first I discovered that the NIC requires a newer kernel than the 2.6.18 that CentOS uses...

But anyway once I got a network connection I tried to install the nvidia binary drivers

After a successful install X crashes upon startup. the message in the log is:

Code:
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:0:18:0.
The weird part is that according to lspci my video card is at 0:12:0. 0:18:0 is a pcie bridge or somesuch.


I have attached a gzip of nvidia-bug-report.log because the raw file was too big for the forum to accept, I have also included the Xorg.0.log file from when I see the problem.

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x31:0xffffffff:949)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

I switched from CentOS 5 to Fedora Core 7 because the FC7 kernel supports the LAN and sound on the 7025/630a out of the box.

With FC7 the graphics drivers work just fine. I have attached another bug report in case you want to compare.

p.s. There was a BIOS 'update' available from www.abit.com.tw (but not from www.abit-usa.com), but my board came with the newer BIOS already.
