Default Re: 8756 Driver fails - GLX wont load

Just got a new card "XFX Geforce 6800 XT" for my Ubuntu Breezy box. Intalled the lastest driver 8756 downloaded from www.nvidia.com, and using "nvidia-xconfig" to change the "xorg.conf". However the X cannot be started. Part of the xorg.0.log files is shown as follows:

Quote:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module glx
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
...........
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
The output from "startx -- -verbose 5 -lgoverbose 5" is also attached to this post.

It seems the module "nvidia" and "glx" cannot be loaded. "nvidia" IS in /proc/modules and I also added "nvidia" in /etc/modprobe.d/modules. But X still cannot start.

Really appreciate if someone can help to fix the problem.
