Default 2.6, Debian Sid and libc 2.3.2.ds1-10. GLX error (about TLS...).


I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.6, and compiled nvidia drivers patched with code (following the procedure from that web). Then, I also copied the various TLS binaries to their locations. But xfree doesn't load the GLX extension:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/
dlopen: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: __gl_tls_var0
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/

(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 135874371)

Other modules load correctly, and xfree is usable (no quake, of course :-P ).

In case of using the no-TLS version, the X screen remains black and the consoles freeze with at half bright tone (though the system is responsive).

Option "NvAGP" "0"

* Debian Unstable/Sid
* libc6 2.3.2.ds1-10 (I have searched through varous web sites and mailing lists and it seems to be a problem related to the last versions of libc -though libc mantainers passed "the ball" to the nvidia package mantainers. Tsk, tsk, closed source is not a good thing...-).
* xfree86-common 4.2.1-14
* xserver-xfree86 4.2.1-14
* Linux 2.6.0-test11
