i've had the same problem, basically you don't have openGL(GLX) installed for your graphics card

go here, to get to get nvidia GLX drivers.

follow the instructions on the readme/site. It's fairly easy.

What if you're using an ATI card(I know they suck on linux boxes but I can't afford a new one at the moment)?

ATi do have drivers out that are now compatible for Xorg 6.8.1 (if you're running a 2.6.10 kernel you'll need to patch the drivers first though) -
