Error: could not insert 'nvidia' :Exec format error [solved]

So I was installing the linux-ck kernel today. I have had success with installing it, so I decided to make a few changes.

I turned on BFS and make localmodconfig,

now there is the error of

Error: could not insert 'nvidia' :Exec format error

I had installed nvidia-ck before I restarted the computer and removed nvidia. I have tried different combinations of the drivers, including the open version. Here is some commands I ran

lshw -C display

  *-display UNCLAIMED

here is where the error starts in Xorg.0.log

I than tried to revert back to the original untouched linux-ck kernel it is now producing the same error.  The only kernel that is working is the regular one that comes with Arch

I love computers, networking and Arch Linux. Sometimes I might ask a stupid question, but please have grace with me like I would with you.

So I was just recompiling another kernel and I noticed this. It is still compiling I just thought that it might be related.

==> Running Steven Rostedt's make localmodconfig now
using config: '.config'
nvidia config not found!!

* Restart config...

* GPIO Support

Re: Error: could not insert 'nvidia' :Exec format error [solved]

OK, I had this problem as well earlier tonight as I was installing linux-ck,
What I did was booted into the -ck kernel (ignoring the errors) and made sure that linux-ck-headers were installed.
I then reinstalled nvidia-ck and modprobed it within the -ck kernel, which was successful. After rebooting it worked as well.

Does this work for you?
