I was not able to load nvidia kernel module after i emerged nvidia-kernel.

I tried to use modprobe first but it reject to load the nvidia module saying

"FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.11-gentoo-r9/video/nvidia.ko): Invalid module format"

Then i tried "modprobe -f nvidia" and which worked just fine. I was able to direct render and so on. Seeing glxgears and so on, i inserted nvidia to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and commanded modules-install.

But the next time i booted, it failed to load the module; and now i can't startx as i tweaked xorg.conf for nvidia.

Any help would be great....
