For future posts try to only post the important parts of log files. (i.e. the ones that start with (II) are informational and not necessarily relevant)

How did you install the drivers for your nvidia card? Are they from Nvidia's website? Do you have the nvidia kernel module installed?

P.S. You may want to edit your first post and remove everything before "(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"" just to shorten it up a bit. I think everything before this line is normal. The unresolved symbols after this message tell me you may not have the kernel module installed/loaded.

Ad this line in the XF86Config file under the graphic card section
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"
Makes Nvidia Kernel ignore TV's and Flatpanels or soemthing like that

Fixed all my problems.

explanation from the README file (included in Nvidia package):
--------
"If you receive errors about unresolved symbols, then the kernel module has most likely been built using header files for a different kernel revision than what you are running. You can explicitly control what kernel header files are used by building the NVIDIA kernel module from the NVIDIA_kernel tar file with: 'make install SYSINCLUDE=/path/to/kernel/headers'."
