Default Install problems, Mandrake 9.2, FX 5200


Summary: can't start X with 5336; can't start GLX with 4496

System; Mandrake 9.2; P4, nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1). uname -r => 2.4.22-26mdkenterprise

First; it would not compile (Makefile: error finding kernel module name or something). Only finally resolved by adding export SYSSRC=/usr/src/linux before running the installer - although this is said to be one of the defaults.

Then: startx fails: message in XFree log:
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NvAGP" "3"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Use of any AGP requested (try AGPGART, then try NVIDIA's AGP)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xF0000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xFD000000
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

This is the same regardless (0,1,3) of NvAGP setting.

So, I gave up and fell back to 4496

Installer runs smoothly. X starts fine. No glx. Message in XFree log:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/
dlopen: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/ cannot handle TLS data
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"

I tried various suggestions on the web to move files out of the lib/tls directory and link to their non-tls versions, with no progress.

I would be very grateful for any advice,

Thanks in advance,
