Perhaps you should try this in a character login in run state 3 (no GUI
login - only character). Then be sure no other nvidia-related kernel
modules (e.g., the ones you are hoping to replace) are loaded. If they
are, the nvidia module will complain as it seems to be doing. After the
modules are gone, try loading the driver with:

modprobe nvidia

If that works, then change to state 5 and see what happens. Do you get a
gui login?

If you are successful that far, then you need make this work
automatically. That was described by an earlier message (not by me) in
