Re: glxgears makes x to crash
Examine the logfile for mention of loading GLX, it sounds like the glx extension is failing to load.
A successful load should appear similar to below:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.5341
Module class: XFree86 Server Extension
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.1
(II) Loading extension GLX
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
And this line should not be seen soon after:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
