You can ignore this error. The rivafb module will never be loaded and
so will not cause a conflict.

See http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/ for the detail (down at the
bottom). The quick answer is reinstall the nVidia driver (perhaps not
needed) then issue the commands:
cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*
You will need to be root to do this, of course. Then reboot, making
sure your xorg.conf is correct, and that should fix it. If not, then
you have more problems, but since it worked until reboot, then I think
this is it.
