I'm not sure if I understand the steps you took but you need to build both the kernel module and the driver using the slackbuilds from the same Nvidia series.

So if the card is supported by the 173 series, you need to use following slackbuilds:


If seems that you have used the slackbuilds:


did I understand correctly?

Objet: [Slackbuilds-users] Problem with nvidia-legacy173 slackbuild

I installed the nvidia-legacy173 series from slackbuilds.org. 
When I try to run startx I get the following message: 
The nvidia kernel module has version 71.86.06, but 
the nvidia driver component has version 173.14.12 
I can't get graphics. 
This is the output from lspci: 
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1) 

I used the slackbuild for the nvidia-legacy71 and it works OK for the GeForce FX 
According to the nvidia website the 173 series should be the one to work for 
this card. This slackbuild also works for the following card which it is supposed to work for: 
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV6 [Vanta/Vanta LT] (rev 15)
