Exclamation Re: (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)


I seem to have a problem with the GLX module loading, I have been trying for a week now, copying files here there and everywhere. I am so desperate to have beryl working on FreeBSD rather than switching to ubuntu just for beryl.

I have followed the instructions from GKontos on the beryl wiki and the original post on the bsd forums to no avail. I have searched for countless hours, tried so many things, reinstalled a few times, installed new partitions. I am using the latest nvidia driver, I have a 6600GT PCI-E.

beryl# uname -a
FreeBSD beryl.home 6.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 12 10:40:27 UTC 2007  i386

beryl# kldstat
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1   37 0xc0400000 6f6544   kernel
 2    2 0xc0af7000 1adb8    linux.ko
 3   30 0xc0b12000 22b88    sound.ko
.... ALL sound drivers loaded until i figure out which i need ....
