Xorg -- (EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
What up linux world!
Well as my subject claims my glx does not load I ran ldconfig like nvidia sites says but no luck I am using kernel 2.6.11 and nvidia-kernel 1.0.7174
kernel loads the nvidia kernel no problem, my x ( Xorg. 6.8.2) server starts no problem, it's just my 3d apps that do not work like chromium or xlock hehehe
this is what happens when i type the command chromium
chromium: error while loading shared libraries: libnvidia-tls.so.1: cannot handle TLS data
and this is my Xorg.log
# grep 'EE' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
So if anyone else has encounter this problem and can point me in the right direction I would appreciated.
Thanks in advance
This person is using debian but see if it works for you too, let me know.

yes you are right Crashed_Again, I totally forgot I am using Gentoo
doralsoral, it didn't work dang! I want to play my bloody game! heheheh well I'll keep searching.
anyone else have any suggestions? hints? links?
Do you have nvidia-glx installed? Try this(as root):
# echo 'media-video/nvidia-glx ~x86' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
# emerge nvidia-glx
# opengl-update nvidia
yes dude I have nvidia-glx installed I followed gentoo's web site on this. although I did try to re-emerge the nvidia-glx but no luck
anyone?? i want to play my games hehehehe
I am not given up, the solution is out there!! I know it is!
Im having somewhat of the same problem in Ubuntu 8.10
My video card is a 8800 Ultra running a Dual Monitor setup.
Every time I reinstall the NVIDIA drivers and re-setup the xorg.conf it works for 2-3 reboots and then on startup Xserver crashes with the following errors.
currently working with NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.22 driver
This is My Xorg log file
I will keep looking and if I find anything I will report back
Ok so I have solve my problems with the NVIDIA drivers. I dont know if this will help you windowsrefugeeX I know your not on Ubuntu but this is what I did.
in tty1 (ctrl+alt+F1)
Stopped my Display Manager
Hope this helps. if not you maybe someone will find this and get theirs working
It works great
Thanks seanfalloy. Your solution worked great!
I had the same problem and was redirected here, none of the above solved my problem so I thought I'd go post (register even) here after I found the solution.
The full walk-through was found here:
Basically the problem was that I downloaded the driver from Nvidia, these drivers didnt work for me so i reinstalled the previous drivers using envyng as described above.
However the previous installation created the symlinks
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -> /usr/lib/libGL.so.185.18.36
/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 -> /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.185.18.36
And my current driver was 180.44 this meant that I was using two different versions of the driver and, well... bad stuff
The fix was to force the symlinks to the correct libs
/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -> /usr/lib/libGL.so.180.44
/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 -> /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.180.44
