kernel install works, but GLX doesn't
 
hello all!

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
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3.403

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?

Yes, there's a libGL.1.0.3123 right there, and all his closest buddies :D.

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!
