Well, hang on, you're loading "glx" as it is, but it's picking up the wrong one. Have you even installed the nVidia drivers?
well, thanks for reply... after I read your reply 3 times to grasp all of it. the shore answer for the question is I installed debian from the CD I downloaded from their website. I don't even know if there is a driver installed "well, I take that back, nv driver is what it shows being the installed one" I thought nv is what will work form my nVidia Riva TNT2".
now, if I am suppose to install nVidia driver, what I am suppose to do to accoplish that? "boy- am I gana have some fun with the step learning curve!" I got no idea what "glx" for, or even where is that "README for what to change" located?
I know the latest version for the XFree86 is found here http://www.xfree86.org/current/ and it is 2 numbers ahead of what I now have. the nVidia drivers for Linux are here http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=linux but I don't know which of these I should get

Linux IA32
Latest Version: 1.0-4363

Linux IA64
Latest Version: 1.0-4050

Linux AMD64
Latest Version: 1.0-4180

Free BSD
Latest Version: 1.0-3203

once I download it, then the big "how I am going to install it"? I will download it onto my laptop using windows then depends if I can fit in on a floppy or not, move it to the linux desk top, if it dose not fit then I am in limpo. or should I worry about getting my internet connection to wrok on my linux box first, but if I do, how am I going to browse with out the correct graphic driver?
oh... how am I gona fix this mess
