No. GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap was added in 1.0-9625

You cannot force the use of 1.0-9755, as it has no support for your GPU.

If you need GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap support, you need to use a graphics card which is supported in 1.0-9631 or 1.0-9755.

Thanks,
Lonni

You can try XGL, it implements the texture_from_pixmap extension in kinda "software" mode, see how it performs on your Riva ( but with this GPU, it won't be the fastest desktop spinning you've ever seen, I'm afraid). You could invest few bucks in an FX5200, 6200A, or even a used GF 4MX anyway.
