Actually, looking back in the thread, you posted an /etc/modprobe.conf
that included this line, so I suspect you are using livna's package:
    alias char-major-195* nvidia

I note that your posted modprobe.conf also doesn't have a line like
    alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
although it does have the "uhci-hcd" alias. This also looks like
something that the briefly buggy livna package would have broken.
Check if you have an /etc/modprobe.conf.backup-nvidia-glx and look in
it to see if there's anything else that might have got hosed.

On my machine, I noticed right away because it removed my "eth1" alias
and my wireless stopped working.
