All I can think is that it might be this, in the NVIDIA/Readme file,
especially the part about ldconfig:
A: If X starts, but OpenGL causes problems, you most likely have a
problem with other libraries in the way, or there are stale symlinks.
See Appendix C for details. Sometimes, all it takes is to rerun
You should also check that the correct extensions are present;
'xdpyinfo' should show the "GLX", "NV-GLX" and "NVIDIA-GLX" extensions
present. If these three extensions are not present, then there
is most likely a problem with the glx module getting loaded or it
is unable to implicitly load GLcore. Check your X config file and
make sure that you are loading glx (see "Editing Your X config File"
above). If your X config file is correct, then check the X log file
for warnings/errors pertaining to GLX. Also check that all of the
necessary symlinks are in place (refer to Appendix C).
Hope it helps, sorry if it doesn't.
