Default Problem installing nvidia driver

Hi all,

I'm not being able to install the nvidia 180 driver for my GeForce 6200 on Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope.
inieto@inieto-desktop:~$ uname -a
Linux inieto-desktop 2.6.28-16-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 20 19:48:24 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

inieto@inieto-desktop:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce 6200] (rev a1)

inieto@inieto-desktop:~$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

I've tried with:
- System -> Administration -> Hardware, activating the 180 nvidia driver
- checking the xorg.conf:
Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Disable "dri2"
Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
- tried to install the 185 new driver (which didn't change the results)

The xorg log shows in different tries the following:
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions// undefined symbol: _nv000046gl
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
The sympthom is that after the Ubuntu logo loading black screen which hides the boot sequence, when gdm starts, the system hangs. It doesn't respond to the keyboard.
I have then to reboot in safe mode and restore the X, which makes my xorg load with the basic "nv" driver.

I've attached two generated files from the script, one from the console withouth X and the seccond after restoring X (using the generic "nv" driver)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
