If you are using the rpms, you need more than the kernel-module, you
also need nvidia-graphics6111 and nvidia-graphics6111-libs, as well as
nvidia-graphics-switch. Easiest way to go rpm is to use apt with

apt-get install kernel-module-nvidia-graphics6111-`uname -r`
apt-get install nvidia-graphics6111

An nvidia ready config file will be placed under xorg.conf.nvidia or
XF86Config.nvidia respecitively. After inspecting the changes you can
remove the ".nvidia" suffix.
