Default Error: glXCreateContext failed

Hi,

I have installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run on Debian GNU/Linux Etch en Half system with Linux kernel 2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 #1 SMP.

I haven't GLX on X Window.

If I run glxinfo then I get lines:

name of display: :0.0
Error: glXCreateContext failed

What can I do to solve this GLX problem?

Thank you for pointing me into the right direction!
However, I find a solution for my problem.
I uninstall NVIDIA driver have installed Nvidia way - not Debian way.
I removed the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so file that was not a symlink!
After that I reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nv, and then install again NVIDIA driver in Nvidia way by running sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run.
I shall to update that driver soon.
Now GLX works!
