Interesting. 290.06? The one I got from experimental a couple of weeks ago was 290.03. I think I need to try it.
However, I did get your error because I forgot to unload the old nvidia
module. You can diagnose this if you look in /var/log/syslog, I got:

Nov  8 23:56:20 think kernel: [  837.995242] NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 290.06, but
Nov  8 23:56:20 think kernel: [  837.995244] NVRM: this kernel module has the version 275.36.  Please
Nov  8 23:56:20 think kernel: [  837.995245] NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
Nov  8 23:56:20 think kernel: [  837.995247] NVRM: components have the same version.

but X started without any issues after I ran 'modprobe -r nvidia'.

I did a reboot. I just had to do an upgrade, but I'll see if I the newer drivers will work.

Thanks Andre.
