Problem Nvidia driver


I'm running Debian Etch and I've installed nvidia drivers with apt-get and tried to change them to nvidia.com drivers. Problem is that nvidia.com drivers don't work, dunno why. They do install correctly but x-server won't start. Can someone help we with this? I don't want to reinstall whole system.

This is Xorg.log

Your xorg.0.log has no errors. Is that all of it? What does your /etc/X11/xorg.conf look like? What happens (exactly) when you try to start the x-server?

That is all from xorg.log. Here's my xorg.conf, though I did have to change to 'vesa' that I could start X.

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

When I try to start X screen just gets black, few thin redish greenish lines go through and thats it. I have to press a button and after that it is the blue screen where reads text that x-server cannot be started, do you want to see the log etc. Don't remember exactly but I think you figure it out what I mean.

Did you compile the nVidia drivers against the running kernel or did you switch kernels after building the nVidia drivers?

No I didn't, does that matter?

Yes. When you use the installer from nVidia, you must continue to use the same kernel that you were using when the nVidia installer was run. If you change kernels, you need to re-run the nVidia installer. Your symptoms sound almost exactly like mine every time I forget to rebuild the nVidia driver after a kernel change. AFAIR, there's an error in the Xorg.0.log though. Also, you will need the kernel "development" files for your kernel from your distro. These headers are needed for the nVidia driver to compile correctly.
