I've tried following the instructions posted to this list about a year ago
to try and get nvidia graphics working. But after I install akmod and reboot I
can't login any longer. I had to move the nvidia config files (*) in order to
be able to login.
any idea how I track the problem and possibly get the driver working? 
Also in the process I lost the option of 1440x900 screen resolution so the
image is stretched. Any clues how I can restore that resolution option if
fixing the drivers doesn't work?

(*) mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.orig
mkdir /etc/X11/nvidia-backup && mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*nvidia*
