Unhappy libglx.so: cannot allocate memory in static TLS block

Hi. I am using XFree86 Version 4.3.0, with Linux kernel 2.4.21-pre6. My video card is: nVidia Corporation NV25 [GeForce4 Ti 4200] rev 163. The NVidia drivers I am using are NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4496. The NVidia splash screen comes up ok, but GLX is unhappy. More specifically /var/log/XFree86.0.log gives an error message when loading GLX:
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
dlopen: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so: cannot allocate memory in static TLS block
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7). I have checked a lot of links, checked libraries, and hunted the web a lot to try and figure out why libglx.so can't allocate memory.
Thanks in advance..........
(my XFree86.0.log file is attached)

The NVIDIA driver ships with two sets of OpenGL/GLX libraries in order to support the new and old thread local storage mechanisms available on GNU/Linux systems. It appears that you installed the set compatible with the new mechanism (glibc 2.3 or later), but that your system doesn't support this mechanism (see the README for details). You can either solve this manually or use the NVIDIA installer, which automatically determines the correct set of libraries to install.
