The error in your Xlog uses the word 'module' in this sense:
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 173.14.20 Thu Jun 25 19:28:52 PDT 2009
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01@00:00:0
I'm guessing that the xorg server couldn't load its 'nvidia' module because
the nvidia kernel module wasn't loaded, so that's no surprise.
Does modprobe -nv nvidia say anything interesting?
