Re: glx not loading
The nvidia driver is finally working, after all this fiddling around for so long. I used the force-tls option for nvidia-installer which I had done before but was forgetting this time around.
For some odd reason, I'm getting little artifacts appearing in random places on my desktop and when playing videos, so I'm not quite sure what the deal is with this (if someone could maybe give a suggestion, I'd appreciate it), but other than that, everything's working great.
I'm using the 1.0-9629 driver.
