Reinstall NVIDIA Driver
I've got Slackware 12.0. I have got problem with glx (X logout when I start game World of Padman). I want reinstall my Nvidia drivers. I get it from Linux Display Driver - x86. My graphic cart - NVIDIA GeForce 6600. My /var/log/nvidia-installer.log:

Get totally out of X by eitherCode:
su password init 3
Then running the NVIDIA*.run script as root
Say 'yes' to everything EXCEPT 'look for a kernel module', it will then compile one for you.
Up to you if you want it to modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I let it do it. Works good for me.
Then init 4, go back to your GUI login, and try glxinfo.
Any other questions, look at my post here
