In /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I have the following:
# X may fail to start following an upgrade of X, saying
# "Failed to load GLX" or some such. The fix seems to be to
# rename /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a to some
# other name. Makes no sense but it works. Documented here

That commented note relates to something I found on some web site after
googling the same problem. It seems to work. Note, I have an nvidia
card; if you have some other card, the above may not be applicable to
