Hello:

Did you ever try running the /usr/bin/nvidia-settings program? It's a setup app that comes with the driver and allows to tweak various settings.
Look for it in menus under system/Tools, or start it from CLI.

Good Luck,
V

A warning is not an error and can safely be ignored in 99% of all cases.

I didn't realize both those posts were by you.
I was replying to the one I was quoting.

I did a google search for your error. Seems like some people have been able to fix this by installing the nvidia driver from the nvidia site.

That was good advice, but if they don't work... it's not like it could do much worse, right?
Don't forget to remove the driver you installed through linva. Open the package manager, search for nvidia and remove whatever they name the packages over at linva. - The thing you installed was probably a meta package, so just removing that one might not do it.

See: http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showt...+default+depth

Did you run livna-config-display to update xorg.conf with the correct "File" PATHS?

If not, it may be that your software is looking in the wrong folders, and loading the wrong libGL.so*

Your xorg.conf file should look much like this:
Code:
Section "Files"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
        FontPath     "unix/:7100"
EndSection
You can also verify this by running: ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo

You should get:
Code:
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x00110000)
        libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1 (0x0602e000)
        libGLU.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 (0x0662c000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x005da000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x007c6000)
        libGLcore.so.1 => /usr/lib/nvidia/libGLcore.so.1 (0x05458000)
        libnvidia-tls.so.1 => /usr/lib/nvidia/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.1 (0x005d6000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x00735000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x008c4000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00760000)
        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00a4c000)
        libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00a07000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x005b7000)
        libxcb-xlib.so.0 => /usr/lib/libxcb-xlib.so.0 (0x007ba000)
        libxcb.so.1 => /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1 (0x0079c000)
        libXau.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXau.so.6 (0x00797000)
        libXdmcp.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6 (0x007be000)
