I solved the problem by compiling a new linux kernel and tried again...

but now I get another error..

Quote:
1. NVIDIA: calling KBUILD...
2. make CC=gcc KBUILD_VERBOSE=0 -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=/usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.23-pkg0/usr/src/nv modules
3. Building modules, stage 2.
4. MODPOST 1 modules
5. NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
6. PATH="/var/lib/lunar/compilers:/var/lib/lunar/compilers/:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11/bin:/bin:/sbin" modprobe nvidia && \
7. echo "nvidia.ko installed successfully.";
8. FATAL: Module nvidia not found.
9. make[1]: *** [package-install] Error 1
10. make: *** [install] Error 2
11. ++ Mark Compile stop : "NVIDIA" "100.14.23" "Sat Nov 3 21:19:36 UTC 2007"

hope anyone can tell me what to do now.

Download and install the program at the following link:

http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

"sudo apt-get install envy" w/o quotes in the terminal might also work too.

Anyway, after installing the software, pick the option to uninstall your nVidia driver. Then pick the option to install it. The most up-to-date drivers for your card should be automatically identified, downloaded, compiled, and installed. Then reboot and the drivers will hopefully work.

I solved the problem myself..

I forgot to reboot linux into the new compiled kernel..

It worked after rebooting into the new one.
