AFAIK there's no glx _kernel_ module (which are the ones you load with
modprobe). If properly configured, X takes care of loading its glx
module by itself:

[...]
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
        compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.5328
        Module class: XFree86 Server Extension
        ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.1
(II) Loading extension GLX
[...]

(taken from /var/log/XFree86.0.log)

So, don't bother trying to bring up glx with modprobe -- you won't be
able to do it.

Best,

Andre
