Default Problems with Ubuntu dapper/amd64.


Has anyone seen the following before?

(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
(II) Loading extension NV-CONTROL
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
Xorg continues okay, and I'm able to use 2d graphics fine (so the nvidia kerhel module is working) -- it's just the lack of glx that I need to fix.

I used 'apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-dev linux-restricted-modules..' to install the drivers. I'm using a 64-bit userspace; the nvidia-glx package put the GL libraries in /usr/lib32, which now looks like:

havoc:cjb~ % ls /usr/lib32 nvidia

/usr/lib32 is at the top of my /etc/ld.conf.

Any tips, please? It's a GeForce 7800 GT running a 30" Apple Display, so I hate to watch it going to waste without 3D.
