I also had this problem. When I built the nvidia kernel package, it
installed in a /lib/modules/2.4.9, instead of the /lib/modules/2.4.9-k6
directory that my system used. I set up a link in 2.4.9-k6 to the built file
and it worked fine. Since it was a kernel module, I did have to reboot the
system, too, before the nvidia kernel driver loaded.
