Default x server crashing

Im using Debian/Etch and I used the nvidia installer and it gave me these

-> Running runtime sanity check:
ERROR: The runtime configuration check failed for the library
'libGL.so.1.0.8756' (expected: '/usr/lib/libGL.so.1', found:
'/lib/libGL.so.1'). The most likely reason for this is that conflicting
OpenGL libraries are installed in a location not inspected by
`nvidia-installer`. Please be sure you have uninstalled any third-party
OpenGL and/or third-party graphics driver packages.
-> done.
-> Runtime sanity check failed.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

I went ahead and modified my xorg config to use the nvidia driver,
loaded up x successully, I can even run glxgears fine. The problem happens
when i try to run bzflag, my xserver crashes. when i try to run tuxkart
it crashed but not x, tuxkart gives this output

Data files will be fetched from: '/usr/share/games/tuxkart'
PW: This is an *INDIRECT* rendering context.PW: That may be bad for performance.FATAL: puInit called without a valid OpenGL context.

I'm not sure what to do, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

try reinstalling your graphics driver.

It seems like there's a library conflict.

Specs: AsusTek P4B533-VM, Intel Pentium 4 2533MHz, 120 GB HDD Maxtor, 80 GB HDD WD, 1GB PC3200 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 6600, openSUSE 10.2 (Main), MacOS X 10.4.5 (leisure use, backup)

Your debian may have a nvidia package installed, and perhaps it is conflicting with your manual driver install.

trying to install the nvidia drivers again doesnt help, same problem.

i did a dpkg query a found out its the xlibmesa-gl package

dpkg-query -S libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2
xlibmesa-gl: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2

now if i go to remove it, it has quite a few dependant packages, one of them being the x-windows-system, so now i have to remove the package and ignore the depedencies it seems.

not sure how thats going to turn out though...

Your libGL.so should be part of the nvidia driver, not xlibmesa-gl. I'm not sure how this would be handled in debian package-land, however installing the official NVIDIA driver packcage from www.nvidia.com should fix this.

X Window System is just metacpackage and it's never installed on my system, as I don't need some packages it suggest to install, so you can safely remove it from your installation.
This is description for X-Window-system:
X Window System
This metapackage provides substantially all the components of the X Window
System as developed by the X.Org Project, as well as a set of historically
popular accessory programs.
