Remove the file /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a, second also remove the VideoRam option from your config file. Further those depthmove, pageflip and fastwrites lines can be removed from the config too as those options don't exist for the nvidia driver.

i find the error with kpackage:
my XF86config was missing of this:

Code:
ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/nvidia" 
ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions" 
ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
in section file.


Why you say it doesn't exist? On every example & forum I've read this configuraztion for nvidia
