There is the issue, have you tried this while loading the module
beforehand?  Directly load the module with modprobe nvidia, then see
what happens.

Yes, just followup.

The kernel module must be loaded.. whether or not it is using the nvidia
agp handler or agpgart instead, the module must load -- get the module
to load and this should go away.  If it works manually inserting the
module, then you might be missing the /etc/modprobe.conf alias:
alias char-major-195* nvidia

I don't have a 64bit chip, so cannot confirm anything.
