I assume you mean:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run --force-tls=new
gives the same results (same xorg.conf w/glx and no dri).
In this particular thread of the problem, I started clean and haven't tried
anything other than what I've been told to do. In the past month I've
tried to get glx working, trying tons of stuff, including the 'tls' thing, and...
in looking at my notes, I saw the 'eselect' thing, so, after the above failure:
# eselect opengl show
# eselect set opengl nvidia
!!! Error: can't load module set
Now, that I've commented out 'Load "glx"' and am running from Xorg...
# lsmod | grep -i nv
nvidia 6832884 16
i2c_core 18432 4 nvidia,asb100,eeprom,i2c_i801
Again, thanks for your time.
