The PDF that you've referenced is 4 years old. Also, you might be confusing the glx version with the OpenGL version. The 1.0-9746 fully supports OpenGL 2.1.0.

Thanks,

Just type in console:
Code:

glxinfo | grep version
to see Glx, OpenGL and driver version.

In my case (Geforce 6150) it looks like this:
$ glxinfo | grep version
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx version string: 1.4
GLX version: 1.3
OpenGL version string: 2.1.0 NVIDIA 97.51

what is the diference between glx versio and glx version string?

Server and client are Nvidia libraries (1.4). GLX 1.3 comes from generic x.org 7.2 install.

You can check from who libraries come:
Code:

$ glxinfo | grep NVIDIA
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL version string: 2.1.0 NVIDIA 97.51
