maybe your XF86Config doesn't use the right driver.
open your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, and check in Section "Device" that it's using nvidia driver:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA your card (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
BoardName "Unknown"

and remove GLcore and dri load line bi commenting them

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-buffering
Load "glx" # OpenGL X protocol interface
# Load "GLcore" # OpenGL support
# Load "dri" # Direct rendering
Load "extmod" # Misc. required extensions
Load "v4l" # Video4Linux
# Load "record" # X event recorder
# You only need the following two modules if you do not use xfs.
# Load "freetype" # TrueType font handler
# Load "type1" # Adobe Type 1 font handler

start your x-server with startx command

misunderstood your pb . so the kernel and glx packs are not installed.
download the .tar.gz version on nvidia official site, and compile them.

tar -zxvf tarfile.tar.gz will extract tarfile in your curent directory

read the readme files in each, i don't remeber which one to make first (think it's glx). you only got to launch make install command in each directory to compile the driver.
move the driver in the right driver directory, and modify the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 as needed (see affiliated doc in untared packs)
