Why are you doing this?

-> The file '/tmp/.X0-lock' exists and appears to contain the process ID
'32501' of a runnning X server.
-> Continuing per the '--no-x-check' option.

Are you using a kernel with console framebuffer support?

What's the output from:
lsmod
cat /proc/cmdline

That's a question for the Debian folks, assuming that they provided your kernel.

as all hope was lost (tryed blacklisting, forcing and grub options) i tryed one last absolutely braindead thing: i removed the nvidiafb module manually and rebootet . it actually worked... afterwards i hapilly installed with the gcc parameter.

in case anyone should face the same problem the module was in
/lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION_HERE/kernel/drivers/video

Glad to hear that you got this sorted out. I'd suggest reporting this bug to whomever builds your kernel.
