nvidia+GLX+glxgears


Hi list
I have debian amd64 kernel 2.6.12 and nvidia graphics driver, when i run xorg(or xfree86) i have this error:
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) NVIDIA(0) Failed to load GLX

X run and all applications work perfectly but every application that use xlibs don't work.....

:~$ glxgears
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
glxgears: Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual.

a:~$ 3ddesk
Attempting to start 3ddesktop server.
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

I have this package installed:
dpkg -l *xlibmesa* |grep ii

and this:
dpkg -l nvidia* |grep ii
ii nvidia-glx 1.0.7174-3 NVIDIA binary XFree86 4.x driver
ii nvidia-glx-dev 1.0.7174-3 NVIDIA binary XFree86 4.x driver development

Have you changed nv to nvidia in xorg.conf?

Okay, next suggestion, whats the output of this:
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib | grep GL
If your libGL.so symlinks point to anything other than libGL.so.1.0.7174 then you should fix this. libGLU.* doesn't need to point to nvidia but libGL.so* and libGLcore.so* should

Same problem here, the output of ls -l /usr/lib | grep GL looks exactly the same as above, is that how it should be? what is the solution?
