A copy of your xorg.conf as well as the lines in the Xorg.0.log that shows 
what is happening when the glx module is in:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/

         compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
         Module class: X.Org Server Extension
         ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.1
