Does glxgears have to be run in root?
 
Just set up a geForce2 on Suse 7.3, and got decent results from glxgears (more to the point, tuxracer ran ;-)).

But, when I went in as a user, glxgears froze the machine. Is that normal? Does anyone know why?

Of all things, it shouldn't freeze the machine. Not sure why, though I have been getting a couple of freezes myself (When starting a 3D program, the machine will lock, with the scroll lock and caps lock LED's on the keyboard flashing).

I'm having the same problem. Windowed GL apps will freeze my system unless I run them as root...or as an alternate user. Somehow there must be something wrong with my user config.

Guess what...I found the problem (I think)...it was the __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=1 option which I had set in my .bashrc file...commenting it out solved the problem!

I guess it's deprecated and they forgot to tell us! :)

__GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK is not depricated, and should work as it always has.

Please send a bug report to linux-bugs@nvidia.com.
