GLX fails on 4363
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've had the 4349 driver running fine for a few months on a laptop with a GeForce4 420 Go 32M. The new 4363 works too, but GLX fails to load:

(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200,1280x854+0+1200"
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(II) Loading extension XINERAMA
(==) RandR enabled

I'm now running XFree86 4.3.0 under Debian sid with the 2.4.20 kernel; log file attached.
If I start a 3D program, such as Tuxracer, X crashes.

Added: I downgraded to the 4349 driver and GLX now loads fine (I made no other changes):

(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200,1280x854+0+1200"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(II) Loading extension XINERAMA
(==) RandR enabled

(II) [GLX]: Initializing GLX extension

Tuxracer now works fine -- however, now I can't switch modes in XFree86 4.3.0. Since that matters more to me than 3D at the moment, I'll revert to the 4363 driver, hoping for a swift update to fix the GLX problem.

Cheers,

i think maybe you should try loading the drivers again cause it doesn't look like it was done correctly...if you look in the log file you posted, it indicates that you are trying to load libglx.a instead of nvidia's libglx.so....post your nvidia_installer.log file to see if it shows of any problems that may be occuring in the installation....

Or, just move libglx.a out of the way (it's in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions) and try it again. ;)

GLX problem gone
 
I appreciate the feedback. I don't know what went wrong the first time, but glx is now working after a second installation.

In /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/ there is no libglx.a, only the symlink libglx.so to libglx.so.1.0.4363 and libglx.so.1.0.4363 itself. I didn't have a chance to check for libglx.a before the reinstallation of 4363.

The only difference I can think of between these two installations of 4363 is that the first time I used nvidia-installer --update and the second time I had downloaded and then ran NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run.

It may therefore be that running nvidia-installer --update causes the problem.

Cf. the separte thread on RH9 and GLX failing to load.

Cheers,
Liontooth
