nvidia installs it's own gl libs - if you install this you will completely hose the nvidia gl libs ( the most horrible opengl visuals/performance. On mine, it always put big "patches" of black all over terrains and textures in games. ( some distro's try to sneak in mesa and glut in on you during updates, gotta watch for this when using nvidia drivers).

are you using the nvidia drivers from their site are trying some pre-packaged rpm?
