XFree86 version GLX error
Ok, I have the very latest stable XFree86. Its 4.2.1 I believe. Thats installed ok. When I try to install the latest Nvidia linux drivers it barfs on the GLX rpm saying that it needs an XFree86 version greater than 4.0.1. Now, I have XFree86 greater than 4.0.1, so whats the deal?!?!

Thanks for the help,

It's checking your RPM database as its reference for dependencies. You can avoid that by passing '--nodeps' to rpm when you install. Alternatively, you can use the GLX source tarball.
