as far as I know flightgear needs rendering software, just opengl.
At start it looks in its configfile, and tries to set the settings and
initialising the scenery.
IMO you MUST have an opengl-driver working ! Otherwise it will crash.
Why does the nvidia-driver not work ? It should, if you use the Debian
packages and compile the nvidia-kernel-module on your own, and, additionally
install the package nvidia-glx.
Good luck !
