Default invalid ELF header :(

hi,
i've tried debian nvidia kernel releases, nvidia official script and module-assistant installation but my 3d acceleration doesn't works!
i have "nvidia" driver in xorg.conf and X doesn't starts.
here is my X log:
Code:
...
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1: invalid ELF header
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
...
my device is an NVIDIA Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go] and i use ubuntu dapper.
any suggestion?

I'd suggest that you reinstall the NVIDIA graphics driver, /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 appears to have been corrupted or improperly installed.

Default Re: invalid ELF header :(

ok, i've removed any precompiled driver, i've purged and reinstalled the official script... X log was clean (no more elf header error) but X server didn't start and screen locked in black (i've tried also a lower bit resolution, but nothing...).


so i changed driver to nv, and after restarting i read on X log:
Code:
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
error opening security policy file /etc/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
(probably because i set DISABLED_MODULES="nv" in /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common ???).

and now?!

@marioquark: no, this error message was printed by the NVIDIA GLX extension module because you configured X to use the nv driver. As to the problem with the NVIDIA X driver, please generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file, preferably after the problem occurred (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678).

Thumbs up Re: invalid ELF header :(

now goes thanks to tseliot on ubuntu forum!
here are his suggestions:

if that doesn't work try point 4 of the Problems Section of my guide (even if the description of the problem doesn't match yours):
http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Latest_Nvidia_Dapper
that is: i have run his script that adjusts packets and downloads+runs the latest nvidia driver script (first link).
then i adjusted xorg.conf and options file as told in his guide (second link).
