GTX 670 not recognized under Ubuntu 10.10. with CUDA 5.0 drivers (304.54.)

I switched a C1060 with a GTX 670 in one of our servers and installed the new CUDA 5.0 drivers (304.54.). The server is running Ubuntu 10.10… I used The problem is, that the card is not recognized by the system:

lspci | grep -i nvidia

03:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0e0a (rev a1)

ls -l /dev/nvidia*

NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia1 (No such file or directory).
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with NVIDIA driver. Make sure that latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

What could be the problem? Is it the minor version difference of the OS? I unfortunately cannot down- or upgrade the server.

I found it in the documentation @


sudo update-pciids

to update the PCI hardware database that Linux maintains.
