nvidia and glx
 
Bonjour,

I have some problem with a nvidia video card GeForce FX 5200 Ultra. I installed nvidia drivers from FC 1 distribution and glx seems not work.

Here is the log from /var/log/XFree.0.log:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a
(II) Module glx: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading sub module "GLcore"
(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a
(II) Module GLcore: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading extension GLX

Here everything seems perfect. But at the end:

(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX

Any idea?

Moreover, I get some disconnection, with this message in the log file:

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

Here is my XFree86Config:

Section "Module"
#Load "GLcore"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "int10"
Load "speedo"
EndSection



Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
EndSection

Thank you for any advice.

Use Nvidia's official Forceware drivers on nvidia's website. Other are either beta, or taken off an installation CD, These drivers were not tested for all situations.

download the offical forcewares if you want to have the most stable and glitch free driver.
