    Default Problem starting X-Server, installed nvidia driver

    I recently installed a nvidia driver on my Backtrack 5 (KDE, 32-bit). Now I get an error when I try to start the X-Server with the command "startx". I've managed to get the .log-file from backtrack, which is located under /var/log/Xorg.0.log. The textfile-content is at the bottom of this post.
    So, I wonder if there is some nice people out there who are able to help me with my problem. Please say if there are something else you need to know.

    Here is the textfile-content:
