glx not loading
My X server is unable to load glx. I don't think I've ever been successful in this regard through all my troubles with the nvidia driver (driver was never at fault). I'm just glad I finally have the driver working reliably but I've been wanting hardware acceleration for a long time so I'd really like to get glx working... after all, it would sort of defeat the purpose of the proprietary driver if it refuses.

I'm using the 1.0-9625 beta driver btw.

There is no glx module available for loading.

Am I missing something here...

Re: glx not loading
I'd suggest (re)installing the nvidia driver, and generate an nvidia-bug-report.log if you're still having problems.

Re: glx not loading
Same thing happened to me, after a update. I had to download the new kernel source and reinstall the driver.
This sometime happens were the kernel is updated.

For me it was with fc6.

yum install kernel-xen-devel

then rebuilded the driver.

Hello Lonni,
I was sending you a rather long string of emails awhile back, although you probably don't remember. I was finally able to get the kernel source to work (apt-get one apparently had problems as you presumed) and am now using kernel I used the config file for the apt-get kernel and did a 'make oldconfig.' I haven't been able to get it to work all this time because of incorrect mkinitrd syntax.

I should have mentioned in my first post that I've already tried reinstalling 1.0-8774 with no altered results.

Also, the nvidia-settings tools (glx information section) displays "GLX not available: either the GLX extension is not available on this X server, or there was a problem retrieving GLX information from the X server."

The nv-glx extension is available but not the nvidia-glx one.

The nvidia-installer.log file reveals this error, which is something I'm somewhat familiar with...
WARNING: Unable to perform the runtime configuration check for library
'libGL.so.1' ('/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.0.9625'); assuming successful

Re: glx not loading
Anyone willing to lead me in the right direction... any ideas?

Re: glx not loading
I'm not really clear what the current problem is, and I don't see a recent nvidia-bug-report.log.

Re: glx not loading
I've attached the nvidia-bug-report two posts above.

Re: glx not loading
The nvidia driver is finally working, after all this fiddling around for so long. I used the force-tls option for nvidia-installer which I had done before but was forgetting this time around.

For some odd reason, I'm getting little artifacts appearing in random places on my desktop and when playing videos, so I'm not quite sure what the deal is with this (if someone could maybe give a suggestion, I'd appreciate it), but other than that, everything's working great.

I'm using the 1.0-9629 driver.
