I have the same problem with basically the same xorg.conf and GeForce 6100.

I am running the nvidia drivers, but compiz does not work.

I had the same problem using the nvidia driver. I resolved it by adding the following to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Files"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection
Or, for 32 bit,

Code:
Section "Files"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

For 32 bit


Quote:
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection




For 64 bit


Quote:
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Cool beans! Setting ModulePath fixes the glx issue. I can use cairo-dock and glxgears now. but compiz still can't be enabled.
