xfree86-static and nvidia drivers
There seems to be a problem when we install nvidia drivers(2880-2960) and XFree86-static on mandrake.... and possibly on red-hat. some glx functions picks up their symbols from /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a wich is a static library and not a dynamic... that's causing programs to crash. Not having XFree86-static solves the problem for now.
N.B.: that happens only if the library has been built on the specific machine, else it will pick the correct one.
