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.
Hope this helps,
