Default Re: Nvidia Beta driver 1.0-9625

I just installed this driver using portage; I copied the 8774 ebuild and named it 9625, cut out two lines where there were patches, digested and emerged it, which seemed to have went fine.

It does give me two problems which make it unusable for me: no accelerated GLX, and I can't get it to display 1440x900, the native resolution of my TFT.

/var/log/Xorg.0.log says:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1440x900"; removing.

I didn't need to specify a modeline using 8774, and it doesn't help if I add one now, tried both
Modeline "1440x900" 97.54 1440 1472 1840 1872 900 919 927 946
Modeline "1440x900" 100.000 1440 1456 1464 1480 900 916 924 940 -hsync -vsync

On the GLX issue it says
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
(EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.

Can I do anything to get one of these things working? Or is this a bug only you can solve? Do you need any more info for that?

now that I have everything ready anyway will try compiz now, but since GLX doesn't seem to work OK the performance will likely suck bigtime.
