Default Direct Rendering = no with driver 4191

Installed and configured this driver awhile ago and just recently installed rss-glx a glx screensaver. It kept crashing with the glx_render command. I did a glxinfo and noticed that the direct rendering part says no. The 3*** series had this set to yes. 'Load glx' is in my XFConfig file. I'm running Debian Sid. Any ideas? Posting glxinfo for reference. Since I can only attach one file, here is the relevant parts of XFConfig: Thx.

Section "Module"
Load "bitmap"
Load "dbe"
Load "ddc"
Load "extmod"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "int10"
Load "record"
Load "speedo"
Load "type1"
Load "vbe"


Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Option "HWCursor" "on"
Option "NoLogo" "on"
Option "CursorShadow" "on"
Option "CursorShadowAlpha" "50"
# Option "RenderAccel" "on"

client glx vendor string: SGI
client glx version string: 1.2
client glx extensions:
GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context
GLX extensions:
GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating
You've got the wrong libglx files. I imagine that Mesa or X overwrote the NVIDIA ones - you'll need to reinstall the driver.
