UT2003 Error
 
Hi, i installed the new NVIDIA Linux Drivers, but when i start the UT2003 Demo i get the following error message:
~:/usr/local/games/ut2003_demo> ut2003_demo
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual

I think, there has to be a mistake in the config, because the Drivers are installed...
~:> rpm -qa | grep NV
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123

I hope anyone knows what all this stuff means, BlackEagle.

I also attached my XF86Config if it helps...

Andy Mecham 10-01-02 04:36 AM

You're missing the GLX driver. This usually means that either the GLX portion of the driver install didn't successfully complete, or your XF86Config-4 file isn't configured to load it.

Does your XF86Config-4 file have the line

Load "glx"

in it? Did the NVIDIA_GLX package install correctly?

Thanks!

Hey Andy,
there is a Load "glx" line in the Config...
Here, take a look:

btw, I got SuSE 8.0 installed and a Geforce 4 Ti 4200.
Must the config file be named XF86Config-4? Mine is named XF86Config, without -4 at the end.

BlackEagle 10-01-02 07:27 AM

It's me again, there were no errors during install....:confused:

bwkaz 10-01-02 10:27 AM

If there is a file named XF86Config-4, then your X server will use that file, and not XF86Config.

Check your X log (/var/log/XFree86.0.log) to see which config file it's using, and make the changes to that one.

HunterA3 10-01-02 06:52 PM

did you install the latest nvidia drivers or just allow your distro to use the default drivers it uses?

mtrr 10-01-02 06:54 PM

post the output of "xdpyinfo", you'll see the version, and the number of extensions for your running X.

cheers

Have you tried compiling from source? (.tar.gz)
I have never compiled nv drivers from rpm, and I never had any problems with compiling from source, so you might want to try that :p

BlackEagle 10-02-02 08:31 AM

It's working!!!
 
Hi, i found the following lines in my /var/log/firewall log-file:
Oct 2 13:39:10 client2 kernel: nvidia: Can't find an IRQ for your NVIDIA card!
Oct 2 13:39:10 client2 kernel: nvidia: Please check your BIOS settings.
Oct 2 13:39:10 client2 kernel: nvidia: [Plug & Play OS ] should be set to NO
Oct 2 13:39:10 client2 kernel: nvidia: [Assign IRQ to VGA] should be set to YES

I changed my bios settings as the file said and it worked!!!
Don't ask me why this stuff was in the firewall log file. Anyway, thanks for your help :-)

Cya, BlackEagle.
