I've been playing with this for a while now and I have no idea what to do now.

To put it shortly, my X just started messing up after a reboot. I do not know why. I re-installed the glx and kernel drivers for nVidia, recompiled X, switched kernels.

When I startx, I either see a blank white screen, or the nVidia logo on a blank white screen, and the entire system locks up. I reboot, and when I check the X log, the last line just says:
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
What would cause my system to be unable to load glx?

did u emerge the kernel-nvidia and nvidia-glx?
see i had a problem with nvidia as well expect mine was that it couldn't load the glx for some reason, so after reading and re-emergin and some more reading I finally gave up and installed windoze and clicked on the exe for nvidia lol no no no just joking,

What i need was downloaded the driver from nvidia(for linux of course!) unmerge my kernel-nvida, and nvidia-glx, installed the driver w/ sh and it works fine now.

PS do not forget to modify your xorg.conf or Xfree file
