Default X crashes when trying to run mythtv-config

I've installed mythtv, and when I'm trying to run mythtv-setup (from the mythtv user) X simply crashes. It looks like a display driver issue, since I changed /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use the "nv" driver (instead of the "nvidia"), and mythtv-config worked, although it showed a very strange palette that made it practically impossible to see the menus.

After crashing, I created the nvidia-bug-report.log, but from a console, since I didn't want X to start again and overwrite the existing log. I'm attaching it.

Looking at the bug report, I see that it says "Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check your X log file ...". Indeed the log file includes references to "glx" and the glx shared object a few times, but I don't understand enough to translate that into actions that will correct the situation.

Also, at the end of the log, I see "Caught signal 11. Server aborting" message, and the backtrace includes libglx.so in it.

Assuming mythtv needs glx, how do I make it work?

Default Re: X crashes when trying to run mythtv-config

From your bug report -
ERROR: File '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so' is not a symbolic
-> The previously installed symlink '/usr/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1' has
target 'libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.8776', but it was installed with target
'libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.8774'. /usr/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1 will not
be uninstalled.
-> done.
WARNING: Your driver installation has been altered since it was initially
installed; this may happen, for example, if you have since installed
the NVIDIA driver through a mechanism other than the nvidia-installer
(such as rpm or with the NVIDIA tarballs). The nvidia-installer will
attempt to uninstall as best it can. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.
-> Uninstalling NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (1.0-8774):
-> Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglx.so ->
libglx.so.1.0.8762 (File exists).

I would start by re-installing the nvidia drivers either 8774 or the latest for your card 9631.
