Default Black screen + segfault if glx is enabled

I'm using 'nvidia' driver but if I enable 'glx' in xorg.conf I got only a black screen and a segfault

from lshw
Code:
 *-display

Does this problem persist if you install the official NVIDIA driver package?

Default Re: Black screen + segfault if glx is enabled

This is a kernel incompatibilty issue which has been discussed in several other threads in the past. I'd suggest searching on 'autoconf.h' for workarounds.
