Is it possible that you have installed nvidia-driver in the past?  It (I 
think) overwrites X11R6 glx stuff.  Make sure nvidia-driver isn't 
installed now and (hateful I know) try re-installing xorg-libraries and 
xorg-server.  The nvidia-driver definitely won't help you if you have a 
matrox card!
