glx loading problems

These errors is coming up when I'm shutting down x (using enlightenment)

dlopen: libnvidia-tls.so1: cannot handle TLS data
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/modules/extensions/
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
Anyone know how to fix this?

grab the newest nvidia drivers from nvidia and install them should do it. seems like the original install has been corupted or is not installed anymore, like mabye from a kernel upgrade. i would have to know more abou thte system though. looks to me like you have glx in the xorg.conf file, but not built, so just grab the .sh installer and run it as root should do it.

can you post your system and distro info, and maybe what type or nvidia card.

Here's some info that helped me - I was getting the same error with the installer. This is from the readme that gets installed with the driver (in /usr/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README.txt):

Problems will arise if applications use the wrong version of a library. This
can be the case if there are either old libGL libraries or stale symlinks left
lying around. If you think there may be something awry in your installation,
check that the following files are in place (these are all the files of the
NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set, as well as their symlinks):


/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/ ->

/usr/lib/ ->
/usr/lib/ ->

/usr/lib/ ->

/lib/modules/`uname -r`/video/nvidia.o, or
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o

If there are other libraries whose "soname" conflicts with that of the NVIDIA
libraries, ldconfig may create the wrong symlinks. It is recommended that you
manually remove or rename conflicting libraries (be sure to rename clashing
libraries to something that ldconfig will not look at -- we have found that
prepending "XXX" to a library name generally does the trick), rerun
'ldconfig', and check that the correct symlinks were made. Some libraries that
often create conflicts are "/usr/X11R6/lib/*" and
