did you install your nvidia drivers ?? if so, what does your /etc/x11/xf86config file look like? is it properly edited, after installing the drivers, if you did so?

i think i got it ....
the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so was pointing to the older glx module ( i think the one that gets installed when you emerge nvidia-glx ) so i unmerged nvidia-kernel and nvidia-glx and installed the new nvidia driver using their program.
