Debian, x86_64-1.0-8178 glx not working
 
I am running the official NVidia drivers as downloaded from the NVidia site (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178). I am using two monitors with TwinView and all seems OK, except that I cannot run nvidia-settingS or any OpenGl application (e.g. glxgears): whenever I try to load the glx module my XServer refuses to start, without any errors in the XOrg.log.0 (there is 1 warning about skipping the submodule "fb" due to not finding the the symbols)

I have checked that all the files that are on the system are the correct files as per NVidia FAQ.

I there something I can do about this as I really must run some OpenGL aplications?

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file after a failed attempt to start X with the GLX module. Does the problem reproduce immediately after the driver installation or only after a reboot? In the latter case, does /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx still exist (part of Debian's nvidia-glx package)?

It is reproducable both after (re)installation and reboot. I do not have /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx.

Attached the zipped nvidia-bug-report.log

-> Unable to access previously installed file
'/usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.1.0.8178' (No such file or directory).
-> Unable to access previously installed symlink
'/usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.1' (No such file or directory).


X crashes because the wrong TLS library is being loaded (/usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.1). Does /usr/lib/tls exist?

No, it does not exist in my 64-bit /usr/lib directory. The file and it's symlink however *do* exist in the /usr/lib directory itself. As I look at the timestamps of the files in the /usr/lib directory, they are from the NVidi install (and as I have not installed the Debian deb files I cannot imagine any other program createing and installing *nvidia* files ;-)).

The installation program however, did create (and install) the file and the symlink in the 32-bit emul environment.

TIA

The files in /usr/lib are not identical to those the installer attempted to install to /usr/lib/tls; does the problem go away if you create /usr/lib/tls and reinstall the driver?

Installation with a manually created /usr/lib/tls does the trick.

Thanks for the assistance
