ive been trying to install nvidia drivers on linux, i have followed the instructions in the readme and im pretty sure i have been using the correct files. when i enter start x i get the following error message

EE failed to load module "v41" (module does not exist, 0)
EE failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
EE no drivers available
fatal server error
no screens found

x10 fatal IO error 104 connection reset by peer on x server ":0.0
after 0 requests (0 known processed with 0 events remaining)

ive been trying to figure this out for 2 days now and im really lost.

It looks your nvidia module was not loaded. Have you installed it for the same kernel you're running now?

Well, it writes: "module does not exist". Maybe you have 2 different kernels and nvidia driver is installed only for one of them?

Try using the tarballs to install the NVIDIA drivers if you haven't already. I have personally had success with those, following the directions to the letter. I know other people on here who have likewise had success with tarballs. Which Distro. are you using (if any)?
