Default StartX Crash with 2.6 Kernel - GLX Problem

I know this issue has been reported before on this forum, but I am stuck on this one again:

This is my software setup:
Slackware 10.2
2.6.14.4 Kernel
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178(or 8174)-pkg1.run

When I go to 'StartX', it will not start. The log shows it to crash when it gets to 'GLX'.

When I was using Kernel 2.4.31, I could resolve this by either of the following:

Running the NVIDIA installation with the following command line addtiion:

Quote:
--force-tls=classic
or

doing the following:

Quote:
Moving or deleting the usr/lib/tls directory
Neither of these work with the 2.6 kernel. The only way that I can get Xorg to run is to 'comment out' the 'Load GLX' line in xorg.conf.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you.
