Default Re: 3D Vision in Linux

I am running 64-bit RHEL 5.5 on an HP Z600 workstation and purchased a 3D Vision Kit, but also am unable to get the stereo graphics to work.

I successfully installed the latest nVIDIA driver (260.19.29) for the Quadro FX 4800 graphics card from the "telinit 3" non-X-windows mode.

I have connected the 3D emitter to both the USB port and the 3-pin DIN connector of the Quadro FX 4800.

I also am using the HDMI/DVI cable that came with the kit to connect the computer to the 3D Vision compliant Acer GD235HZ 120 Hz LCD display.

In the xorg.conf file, I set the Stero option to "10", as directed in the README for xconfig options with that 260.19.29 driver:

I have tried rebooting the computer after doing all this.

The emitter keeps flashing red and I can not get stereo to work.

For example,
glxgears -stereo
Error: coudn't get an RGB, Double-buffered, Stereo visual

After hours of searching on the forums, I have been unable to find a solution.

The documentation on the Quadro FX 4800 even claims Full OpenGL Implementation on Linux.
And according to the URL for the Quadro cards, I should be able to get 3D Vision to work.
On that URL, there's a link for supported drivers and displays, which indicates my system is a go.

It would be great if someone could help me figure out what I am doing incorrectly!
