you need to install the nvidia driver where you kernel sources are.

So MOVE your nvidia driver to this location

/usr/src (this is where my kernel sources are located)

then run the nvidia install - something like this:

sh nvidia_XXXXXX.run

see if that works

Here's how I got nvidia drivers to run in 3 steps on Kubuntu.

in the terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

$ nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Changed:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro]"
Driver "nv"
BusID "PCI:0:8:0"
EndSection

to

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro]"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:0:8:0"
EndSection

ctrl+o to save, ctrl+x to exit, ctrl+alt+backspace to restart X, and the nvidia logo showed up.

hey badger, still need help? I've been stressing about this for a couple days and i finally found the solution.

what i did was add

Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"

in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, in your device section under Vendor Name.

Good luck.
