i has xorg install in /usr, so i dont need the /usr/X11R6/lib64 link. 
Here is how i install the nvidia driver:
create some symlinks
/lib64 -> /lib
/usr/lib64 -> /usr/lib64
/usr/X11R6/lib64 -> /usr/X11R6/lib

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2.run -a --ui=none
dont install the 32bit libs!

delete the symlinks

edit /usr/lib/libGL.la, change lib64 to lib

thats all.

I install the 32bit libs manual.
