Problems installing nVidia graphics drivers


I have a GeForce 6600 GT graphics card. I installed them following theese instructions. The nvidia installer compiled and installed the drivers, but at the end of the installation I got errors like /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 can not be found.

Now I have the X server running, but I can't use 3D applications (like tuxracer). When I attempt to launch one such application I get "error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

Obviously this is due to missing OpenGL libraries, but the installer rold me to make sure there are not any 3rd party OpenGL libraries installed... (And the installer itself can't install them...)

Try checking this out from the guys over at FedoraFAQ.org:

http://www.fedorafaq.org/#nvidia

They have prebuilt rpms, which might make it a little easier concerning your dependencies. Also detailed instructions for the original Nvidia drivers.

Now it's totaly f*** up... I tried installing the RPM package, but that didn't work at all. Then I reinstalled the driver using nvidia-installer (again it gave me errors). But now, the bootsplash doesn't appear while booting, I can't boot directly into X server because the xorg.conf file "automagically" rewrites itself to wrong settings (Load "dri" inside Module section and inside Device section I have driver "nv") which it doesn't work with...

I must be doing something stupid, I guess, because I've never heard that the nvidia drivers were so troublesome...

My /var/log/nvidia-installer.log if anyone's interested:

Any Luck? I haven't been able to run opengl programs for over 7 months because of this.

It has been almost a year since I had this problem. I'm even using different distro now (Gento).

I can't rememeber precisely, but I think I did fix it. I somehow provided it with with symlink /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -- the installed made it, but failed to make the necessary symlinks. Also, I removed an init script that kept changing my xorg.conf to invalid configuration.

But lots of time has passed since then. I see you're using Gentoo. I can confirm that NVidia drivers (nvidia-kernel 1.0.7676-r1, nvidia-glx 1.0.7676-r2) are working fine on Gentoo with GeForce 6600 GT. Can you give us some details about your problem?
