kernel install works, but GLX doesn't
i've been fiddling with this for far too long and i'm at a big loss.
compiled the kernel module from the tarball just fine. Did a make from the GLX and that went off without a hitch as well
I startx, it flickers twice but i see the NVIDIA logo and i'm all excited! UT baby.
Except, whenever i try and run something that uses openGL, from XMMS plugins to Tuxracer to UT, i get the error that...
"Couldn't open required GL library /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2!"
typing "locate libGL" shows me /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLwrapper.so.0.1.6
Do i need to create a symbolic link or something here to make it find so.1.3.blah for so.1.2? I'm at a loss :confused: Any help you can give is greatly greatly incredibly appreciated
Incidentally, i have a Gforce 3, not 2 as it says to the left...maybe that's indicative of something?
If the GLX package installed correctly, it should have moved the GL libraries in /usr/X11R6/lib aside, and copied libGL.so.1.0.3123 and friends into /usr/lib. Are there any libGL.* files in /usr/lib? If not, can you do a make install in the GLX directory again as root?
when i try and run an openGL program (like tuxracer), it crashes out saying that it needs .so.1.2
Either recompile the programs that are hardcoded to look in /usr/X11R6/lib, or just symlink it like you were saying.
If you go the symlink route, run /sbin/ldconfig as root afterward.
Worked like a charm, thanks :)
thank you all for your help!
