If you're going to tamper with a critical subsystem of the installation and refuse to load nvidia's glx module for debugging, then you're not giving us much to help you with. And, if you're that concerned with the closed source GLX module, why don't you just use nouveau? From what I understand, it's good enough for a 2d desktop and minor desktop effects (not even sure about that).

My operating system, called Gentoo Linux, allows me to choose which glx module I want to use so it's a moot point whether or not the Nvidia glx module is loaded cause I choose not to use it.

nouveau is not ready yet for dual-link LCD screens. Anyway driver version 195.36.24 seems to work ok.
