x server crashing
Im using Debian/Etch and I used the nvidia installer and it gave me these

-> Running runtime sanity check:
ERROR: The runtime configuration check failed for the library
'libGL.so.1.0.8756' (expected: '/usr/lib/libGL.so.1', found:
'/lib/libGL.so.1'). The most likely reason for this is that conflicting
OpenGL libraries are installed in a location not inspected by
`nvidia-installer`. Please be sure you have uninstalled any third-party
OpenGL and/or third-party graphics driver packages.
-> done.
-> Runtime sanity check failed.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

I went ahead and modified my xorg config to use the nvidia driver,
loaded up x successully, I can even run glxgears fine. The problem happens
when i try to run bzflag, my xserver crashes. when i try to run tuxkart
it crashed but not x, tuxkart gives this output

Data files will be fetched from: '/usr/share/games/tuxkart'
PW: This is an *INDIRECT* rendering context.PW: That may be bad for performance.FATAL: puInit called without a valid OpenGL context.

I'm not sure what to do, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

Re: x server crashing
try reinstalling your graphics driver.

It seems like there's a library conflict.

Re: x server crashing
Your debian may have a nvidia package installed, and perhaps it is conflicting with your manual driver install.

Re: x server crashing
trying to install the nvidia drivers again doesnt help, same problem.

i did a dpkg query a found out its the xlibmesa-gl package

dpkg-query -S libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2

now if i go to remove it, it has quite a few dependant packages, one of them being the x-windows-system, so now i have to remove the package and ignore the depedencies it seems.

not sure how thats going to turn out though...

Re: x server crashing
Your libGL.so should be part of the nvidia driver, not xlibmesa-gl. I'm not sure how this would be handled in debian package-land, however installing the official NVIDIA driver packcage from www.nvidia.com should fix this.

Re: x server crashing
X Window System is just metacpackage and it's never installed on my system, as I don't need some packages it suggest to install, so you can safely remove it from your installation.
This is description for X-Window-system:

X Window System
This metapackage provides substantially all the components of the X Window
System as developed by the X.Org Project, as well as a set of historically
popular accessory programs.
