I had the same thing.
note that there are typo's in the receipe there. i've corrected it a bit below:
enter init 3,
#cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
#chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*
save a copy of xorg.conf:
#cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.original
change /etc/X11/xorg.conf per /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README
in particular: find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:
(or Driver "vesa")
In the Module section, make sure you have:
You should also remove the following lines:
if they exist.
this is all magic to me but it's part of the new udev stuff. it's new but at least i didn't have to re-compile the kernel.
