    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.
