You had the kernel module loaded, but it couldn't find the X driver. My bet
is that the nvidia installer placed the files in /usr/X11R6/lib64. This
*should* be a link to /usr/X11R6/lib, but you have to create the link by hand
before installing the driver. Also, I have not installed the 32bit
libraries- not sure if they would place nice with the 64bit libraries given
the lib64->lib link...
Also, there are many options for the nvidia X driver (see README)... One
other random note: on my laptop (Compaq R3000), using the 6629 driver, I
have to pass the NVreg_Mobile=0 option when loading the nvidia module. This
option was not necessary for the 6111 driver. Just something to keep in mind
if you are using a laptop.
