Re: glx module failed to load
Thanks again, I copied from another machine onto a cd and installed it. The error message changed to cannot find the mouse in /dev/psaux. I read the pointer is supposed to be at /dev/input/mice so I changed that in the X11 config file. The screen came up to the fedora GUI but it looked terrible with thin vertical lines progressing up the screen and some duplicity.
I restarted and now there is no screen at all, just blank.
