As I said in my first post :
Anyways, then I attempted to install from the .tar.gz files. These compiled cleanly and without error. However, when I reboot, the graphical login will not show ( X won't start ). And there is only a single line at the end of the XFree86.log file that says that the GLX module was being initialized. And then that the server halted with an exit code 11. No other errors.
So I already attempted to build from the source. However, X dies when it tries to initialize the GLX library. And it dies with only an error stating "server halted with an exit code 11". No other error.
