(btw, please don't mix linux distribution nvidia packages with the drivers installed by the official nvidia installer, causes a mess and what we call "breakage".)
Hey, I got it to work. The only problem was that my monitor wasn't detected properly. After I picked some random ViewSonic CRT monitor model and forced resolutions and refresh rates, everything went fine! The drivers installed properly and OpenGL works properly. The only problem is I can't do 1152x864 @ 85Hz. I can do it a 75 Hz but not 85 Hz. Any idea how I can force an 85 Hz refresh rate at 1152x864 resolution?
