Default Nvida driver on Kernel-2.6.20.1

Debian "etch", just compiled my own 2.6.20.1. (I had to do this on my new core-duo machine because older kernels won't support my hardware).

NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9746-pkg2.run
Installs seemingly OK, boots fine, loads NVIDIA driver, verified in xorg-conf.
No GLX seems to be loading, however.
Doing "glxgears" gets:

mike@localhost:~$ glxgears
bash: glxgears: command not found
mike@localhost:~$

Anyone seen this or could help me get glx loaded?
Thanks,
Mike

I use kernel 2.6.20.1 with 9746 and has no problems.
Inside xorg.conf check if exist:
Code:
Section "Module"
Load "glx"
As for glxgears use your package manager to reinstall package containing glxgears.

My God, that was quick, and easy.

I had forgotten to install mesa-utils.
Thanks!
