It says an onther error: "failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module", so I 
created a symbolic link from nvidia/nvidia.ko to 
kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko, but I had no more success, then I tried 
with a hard link and it worked all correct.

thank you it is running fine now here, hope this report will be useful.

I'll be glad to test more if you ask.
