These are all harmless; you probably still have the old font paths in
your xorg.conf. The new ones start with "/usr/share/" instead of
"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/". You can change them or comment them out
completely, since the new Xorg includes the default font paths
automatically (see the last message above).

Did you change all instances of "nv" to "nvidia" in your xorg.conf
before you restarted the X server (or restarted [kgx]dm if you use
graphical log-in)?

It seems that Xorg is trying to use nvidia's glx module together with
the old nv driver. Make sure you changed "nv" to "nvidia" in xorg.conf
and restart the server.

If that does not help then I would like to see the output of the
following commands:

grep -i glx /var/log/Xorg.0.log

ls -l /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/

ls -l /usr/lib/libGL.* 

file /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia*
