Nvidia - OpenGl

If you get the following error in ~/.xsession-errors:

Could not open library ksmserver: Cannot load library /usr/lib/kde4/libkdeinit/libkdeinit4_ksmserver.so: (/usr/lib/libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000009gl)
ksmserver: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000009gl
startkde: Shutting down...
klauncher: Exiting on signal 1
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
startkde: Done.

it might be possible to solve it with:

aptitude reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx

or

aptitude reinstall libgl1-nvidia-alternatives

What you might see is that you get the login prompt from kdm and the initialization of devices start but after one device or so it jumps back to the login screen.
