The (EE) line indicates X can't find the GLcore module.  Mine is in /usr/
X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a  Do you have that file?  What are 
its permissions? (mine are 0644).

I don't use nvidia, so I'm not sure if it provides its own GLcore.  If it 
does, it seems like X doesn't know where to find it.  You might be able to 
just place it in the aforementioned directory, but I can't advise as to 
whether that's the preferred method.
