libextmod.a is unresolved! - error
I installed the new nVidia 1.0-4191 driver from the tar files and the installation ran smoothly. But I couldn't start X because of libextmod.a is unresolved! errors. Commenting out Load "extmod" in the "Module" section of XF86Config makes it possible to start X and everything seems to run smoothly. Though the "Enable Hardware 3D Acceleration" option in the Display Setting window is deemed out. I don't know what extmod gives access to and what I am "loosing" by commenting it out. Could someone explain that please? Could someone help me resolve the problem and enabling extmod?
