Default Re: Need help installing nVidia drivers for RedHat 9.0

(II) Initializing extension GLX
This module will always fail if the nvidia.o kernel module cannot load, make sure the kernel module has loaded prior to X starting. It should auto load because of the char-major entry in /etc/modules.conf, however you should verify that it IS loading. Boot to runlevel 3 (edit /etc/inittab) and then load the module modprobe nvidia then change to runlevel 5, telinit 5. If the module loads with no warning or error (other than a warning about 'tainting' the kernel which is normal) then the glx module will hopefully initialize. You can also see what modules are loaded with lsmod.
