It's a mess. :-(

You have missing symlinks (If you run the original command, you'd see
red-blinking lines). nvidia.ko built by dkms is still there, etc.

If I were you, I would completely remove dkms and all nvidia.ko and
symlinks above. Then do a clean install of the kmod package (
http://elrepo.org/tiki/kmod-nvidia-173xx ).
