X crashes when trying to run mythtv-config
I've installed mythtv, and when I'm trying to run mythtv-setup (from the mythtv user) X simply crashes. It looks like a display driver issue, since I changed /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use the "nv" driver (instead of the "nvidia"), and mythtv-config worked, although it showed a very strange palette that made it practically impossible to see the menus.
After crashing, I created the nvidia-bug-report.log, but from a console, since I didn't want X to start again and overwrite the existing log. I'm attaching it.
Looking at the bug report, I see that it says "Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check your X log file ...". Indeed the log file includes references to "glx" and the glx shared object a few times, but I don't understand enough to translate that into actions that will correct the situation.
Also, at the end of the log, I see "Caught signal 11. Server aborting" message, and the backtrace includes libglx.so in it.
Assuming mythtv needs glx, how do I make it work?
