libGL.so.1 error
Hey All!

I am new to linux, but I think I have my new RH 7.3 box up and running how I like it.

I was trying to get into something more important now.. GAMES, I am trying to play some games and demos I have found, and when I do I am getting this error message:

FATAL: could not initialize OpenGL Library 'libGL.so.1'

What can I do to fix this? The nvidia docs I have read have not been able to help me.

If anyone knows how to fix this, or what commands I can execute to troubleshoot, I would be very thankful

Is that the only error message you're getting? If there are more, post them.

If not, try doing an ldd /usr/lib/libGL.so.1, and seeing if there are any dependencies that it can't find.

What does glxinfo say about "Direct Rendering"?

<obvious question>You did install the GLX half of the driver, correct? </obvious>

The version of NVIDIA_GLX that you used matches your NVIDIA_kernel as well, right?

What about ldd /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1? And while you're at it, try file /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 and file /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1

How about cat /etc/ld.so.conf and echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

I'm not finding anything out of the ordinary so far... :(

Should be libglx.so .... Sounds like you have the original Mesa files installed..<?> If thats the case re-install the drivers.

bwkaz 09-30-02 07:33 AM

libglx.so is the X interface to OpenGL.

libGL.so is the actual implementation of OpenGL function calls.

You need both. libglx.so should be in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions, and libGL.so should be in /usr/lib.

Actually, if there's a libGL.so in /usr/X11R6/lib, then change its name or get rid of it completely, that one is part of Mesa.

Edit: what does xdpyinfo list for running extensions?
