I am running NVIDIA drivers on 13.1 stable x64, so it may not apply to you, but I found that the only driver I could consistently install and reinstall is 256.44. Others would fail during installation or glitch badly.

I use the nvidia binary driver on Slackware64-current and rebuilt the module after the last group of upgrades, including kernel 2.6.35.7. It compiled without problems and it's working properly.

I use Slack-current (Mon Oct 13 20:30:44 UTC 2010) with the nvidia drivers 260.19.12 version and installs correctly.
I can not say anything about the version 256.53 ...

As root, in run level 3, cd to the directory containing the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run file and execute 'sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run'

specialized, I think you missed to install the libelf package, needed by latest gcc in -current.

i already do that, but shows error like this :

Could not compile 'gcc-version-check.c'. Please be sure you have your Linu
x distribution's gcc and libc development packages installed.

by the way, 'sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run' and './NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run' it's result same output isn't (coz i using ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run)

CMIIW

(NB: i'm using Nvidia driver ver 256.53)
