X: "loading extension glx" "no screens found" "fatal server error" (w/ nvidia driver)


After installing the recent Nvidia drivers (described in this docs.slackware.com tutorial), I get the following issues:

Why does X give these "loading extension glx" "no screens found" "fatal server error" errors?

Using the original xorg.conf files and changing the driver to "nvidia", startx loads, but the screen is blank, showing just an underscore ("_"). KDE etc. loads, but it seems it's displaying it on the wrong screen or something.

Have you reinstalled nvidia driver after upgrading to the latest xorg update?

yes

Here's what I wrote recently on another thread:

Code:
[ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module
The "Turbo" light on the laptop, which indicates if the Nvidia card is on, turns on when I invoke optirun, which is good.

I've tried the solutions to this "Cannot access secondary GPU" problem on ArchWiki, but to no avail…

Also, my trackpad freezes upon logging into KDE, so I'm thinking this might involve an issue in xorg.conf.

I'm running slackware64-current with the 3.14.27 kernel.

There's a thread about the "failed to initialize kernel module" part of this issue here, but it's old, from 2004.

@Geremia: It looks to me that the other thread you started is a continuation of this one. If that is the case, then perhaps the title of this one can be altered to reflect it and the other thread absorbed by this one? I don't intend to be critical. My thought is that, if my deduction is correct, maintaining only one thread would be more conducive for a solution.

Yes, please continue it there, not here.

The issue was that the nvidia-kernel package of Bumblebee did not install, due to my lacking libvdpau.

@Geremia, can you mark this as solved?
