Very bad perfomances with nvidia driver

Hi all !
I've recently installed a LFS 6.0-testing and then added some grpahical components like Xorg 6.8.1, gtk... for example.
Then I decide to install Nvidia drivers (version 1.0-6111)
The GUI installer works well without difficulties and then I could modprobe nvidia module with no problem

However, when i look at glxgears, it seems there is a serious problem : 2500 FPS (in a normal situation it's about 6500 FPS ) 

i can launch a game like enemy territory but it's quite slow and textures are very crappy

i've read the readme file and try that : ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/glxgears
here is the ouput on my LFS system :  =>  (0xffffe000) => /lib/ (0x40020000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x400a2000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x400b0000) => /lib/ (0x4017c000) => /lib/ (0x4018e000) => /lib/ (0x401b1000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x402c7000) => /lib/ (0x402cd000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

and now here is the ouput on my former gentoo system : =>  (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/ (0x40027000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x4008f000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40097000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x400a5000) => /lib/ (0x40170000) => /lib/ (0x40181000) => /lib/ (0x401a4000) => /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/ (0x402b6000) => /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia/lib/tls/ (0x4098e000) => /lib/ (0x40990000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)

the files and exist on my system, but i don't know why they're not here
in fact it's the first time that i encounter nvidia problems like that
Has someone any idea ?

Thanks in advance,
