    Yup, you need to enable GLX in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (which you said you did) and you need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use the "nvidia" driver instead of "nv"/"vesa"/whatever, and you need to disable "DRI" and friends if you have that turned on.

    You basically need drivers for your gfx card then.

    Edit: Oh, well they havent been installed right.
    Any ideas? Uninstall and reinstall from NVIDIA's site or from ports? Is there anything special I need to set them up properly.
    Do not install them from ports, it's alot safer to download from Nvidia.com, they will defintley work then.

    However, make sure you don't have a legacy card, in that case you need the nvidia legacy driver or an older nvidia driver to function properly.

    Woohoo, got it working Thanks a bunch guys . I kept messing with it over and over because I didn't see the NVIDIA splash screen when I loaded Gnome, so I got pissed and kept changing ****, then I just tried it and it worked, lol.

    Any chance you can tell me what change you made that got things working again... I've just lost my Nvidia drivers and I'm having a hell of a time making it work again.

    IIRC, I uninstalled my drivers, and then reinstalled them from NVIDIA's site. THen in xorg.conf enable GLX

    Code:
    Load       "glx"
    also, make sure the computer is using the NVIDIA drivers instead of the basic "nv" drivers
