Unhappy 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
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

It would help if you told us what distro you are using or better yet put it in your profile.

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

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

Code:
wil@BigBastard:/var/log$ cat Xorg.0.log.old | grep EE
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module.  If
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0):  *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Im pretty sure the glx error is because its not installed (because I cannot install it due to an dpkg --unpacking error) but it does work for 2 or 3 reboots??????????????????????


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
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
(for gnome)

Installed envy
Code:
sudo apt-get install envyng-core
envy's site says that this program is only for debian distros but it may be possible to hack you way around that

Ran envy
Code:
sudo envyng -t
after following through a bunch of text prompt envy managed to get the Nvidia 180 drivers working properly with nvidia-glx-180 as well

Hope this helps. if not you maybe someone will find this and get theirs working

Another option

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:

http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-L.../msg01920.html

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
