Default (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)

Hi there!
I have an annoying problem with the nVIDIA driver!

Everytime I reboot my machine I get the message in topic in my xorg logfile... So I get some kind of low-res display in ubuntu...

Solution: get to a tty, stop gdm reinstall nvidia driver, restart gdm everything is fine until next reboot...
However, when I reboot and get that message "(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)" I have the extension here:
Code:
 ls -l /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/
total 2032
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   24098 2008-06-13 03:26 libdbe.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   49124 2008-06-13 03:26 libdri.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  168062 2008-06-13 03:26 libextmod.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      16 2008-09-04 19:21 libglx.so -> libglx.so.177.70
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1730960 2008-09-04 19:21 libglx.so.177.70
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   34399 2008-06-13 03:26 librecord.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   51923 2008-06-13 03:26 libxtrap.so
The installer-program knows the driver is installed, because it asks if I want to remove the driver that already is installed when I reinstall the driver... So reasonably something is not right

I have a 64-bit system(ubuntu 8.04.1) I use the 64bit nvidia driver(have tried both installing 32bit compatibility stuff and not installing them, no differense...)
I have tried nvidia driver versions: 177.67, 177.68, 177.70, now using the last...

Anyone experince the same thing? Or have any idea what to try to fix?

Best regards!
Daniel

Please read this:

Just a guess, but you probably did not disable Ubuntu from loading the nvidia kernel module from the linux-restricted-modules package.
