Default Can't start OpenGL

I'm running Fedora Core 1 with the 2129 kernel, I also have a GeForce MX 200.

I've run on RH 7-9 with no problem and just upgraded to Fedora a couple days ago. I had been using the 4363 driver with RH9 and tried using that but got the biuld error, I then grabbed the 4496 driver and had the same problem, I then checked the forum and found out to do the "export CC=/usr/bin/gcc32" first and was able to build the driver.

I than tried playing enemy-territory, everything started fine but the texturing was very messed up, buildings almost never had any texture and the ground would sometimes be normal but often times would be weird swirls (colours also seemed a little off). I couldn't see anything relevent on the forum and saw some stuff about using the RPMs and making sure you had the latest kernel so I ran up2date and got the kernel upgraded oddly when I rebooted with the new kernel XServer started without a hitch, in the past every time I upgrade the kernel I need to reinstall the driver. I can't remember the exact procession of event afterwards but I did try the RPMS but I got the result

error: Failed dependencies:
XFree86-Mesa-libGL conflicts with nvidia-glx-1.0.4496-0.fdr.10.1

and decided i didn't want to mess around with any XFree stuff. I also tried starting without X starting and reinstalling the driver but it didn't help. Also now any OpenGL games don't even start and when I try to start (et for example) I get the result

Sys_Error: GLimp_Init() - could not load OpenGL subsystem

I than tried going back trying combinations of the 4363 driver and the first kernel that came with Fedora but it hasn't made any difference and I still can't start OpenGl. I also have a Hansol 710D monitor which wasn't listed among the monitor types in the display settings so I chose the "Hansol Electronics Mazellan700P" (there was also an A), I don't recall what I had before the upgrade so I don't know if that makes a difference.

thanks for any help you can offer
