Default Mandrake 9.2 - Can't compile softwre with NVidia drivers.


I've installed the nvidia drivers and they seem to work fine. However, I have a problem in that much software using OpenGL will now not compile. When compiling software I typically get an error such as:

cannot find '/usr/X11R6/lib/'

and indeed this file does not exist, though i have seen and others (although they seem to have disappeared at the moment...). Uninstalling the nvidia drivers causes '/usr/X11R6/lib/' to reappear and stuff compiles as normal.

How do I solve this? I guess what I really need to know is:

1) What files get created by the nvidia installer. Are they .so, .a, .la, etc.

2) Where do they get put?

3) How can I make software look in the correct place when linking?

Thanks in advance,


p.s. Should probably point out that I have Mesa installed, which is how come i can compile/run software without nvidia drivers.
