in 2011 there was a thread mentioning the same problem
, but there was no answer to the problem and the problem still exists. There's even some Software, that fails to work, due to this problem:
# eselect opengl set nvidia
from gentoo, writes a file
that sets a new ModulePath for the libglx.so extension installed by the nvidia-drivers. (Just for example).
But at least with the installed X.Org Version 1.16.3 this module path is not used, if there is a
[ 6702.866] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
without this empty Section "Files":
[ 6822.381] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/opengl/nvidia/extensions/libglx.so
. I would assume this is a bug, as without changing any ModulePath in any configuration file, the ModulePath is wrong. But ModulePath should evaluate as a list of all ModulePath settings found in "any" Files section in "any" loaded configuration files.
I don't know why the ModulePath is affected by an empty Section "Files" at all and I don't think it should. An empty Section should be a noop.
