I've got a TNT2 M64 here. Using NVidia drivers and GL system and X4. No
problems. Have you tried compiling the DRI extensions in the kernel?
Also, check what your XF86Config-4 file is loading, should be something

Section "Module"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "dbe"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "pex5"
        Load    "record"
        Load    "xie"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "freetype"
        Load    "speedo"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
        Load    "int10"

Also check that your config file is loading the "nvidia" driver rather
than the "nv" driver.
