Default crash

The command "glxinfo" crashes the XFree 4.3 server when using the nvidia driver (1.0.4349) but not the nv driver.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

What's the output of
Code:
ldd `which glxinfo`
Please also look at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&threadid=9614 and post the relevant information.

Thanks!

Code:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a
(II) Module glx: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
	compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
	ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2
This is your problem - you're not loading the NVIDIA GLX file. How did you install? If you used the installer, did you specify a different location for the glx libraries? If you used the tarballs, did you install the GLX libraries?

Also, you should comment out
Code:
Load  "GLcore"
in your XF86Config file.

I used the installer but I don't think it made changes to my xf86config file.
I had to manually change to the nvidia driver and everything else is left over from the previous card I had.

I followed the nvidia instructions.
I load the following modules:
Load "dbe"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "v4l"

I never loaded GLcore.
Was the XF glx supposed to be replaced by an nvidia version?

Apparently your X server works differently from most other ones. Most of them, when they see a Load line, add lib to the start, and add .so to the end, and look for that file in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions. If that isn't found, then they add lib to the start and .a to the end, and search in the same place.

Assuming you have an nVidia libglx.so file in that directory (the installer will put it there unless you tell it to put it somewhere else), then your X server is looking for the .a version first.

If you don't have a libglx.so file there (it should be a symlink to libglx-1.0-4349.so, I think), then rerun the installer, and don't tell it to put the X files anywhere other than the default.

If you do have a libglx.so file there, then move the libglx.a one out of the way.

I reinstalled the nvidia driver and it works.

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.4349
Module class: XFree86 Server Extension
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.1

I did upgrade from XF 4.2 to XF 4.3 without reinstalling the nvidia driver.

I think the glx extension that XF provides is overwritten by one nvidia supplies and my installing XF overwrote the nvidia version.
That is my theory anyways.

That is exactly what happened.
