Default Resolution and program issues after installation

I recently upgraded my video card to an Apollo Graphics GeForce4 MX440-SE 60MB DDR memory card from a Voodoo3 card. Now I have issues.

Issue 1: I can't get 1024x768 which my Voodoo could with one quarter the memory.

Issue 2: I was using XFree86-4 prior to installing the drivers (I'm 99.999% posative of this), now I'm back to XFree86.

Issue 3: Tux Racer and Chromium won't run. Tux errors with Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". - then - Couldn't initialize video: Couldn't find matching GLX visual (Success)

Driver version : 1.0-4349
OS : Red Hat 8.0
Video Bios: Don't have a /proc/driver/nvidia dir
System : PII-400 ASUS P2B-F

Here's my config:

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Default The questions

So how do I go about getting back my higher resolution? Why would it remove my XF86Config-4 file? And, last but not least, how do I get the GLX driver to load correctly (I'm assuming that's the problem with the games)?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

According to the XF86Config file in your first post, you are using the VESA driver, not the nVidia driver, plus 1024x768 wasn't specified anywhere in it.

Doug.

DOH! I swear I changed that. I must have reset it somehow in trying to fix my troubles. I'll set it to "nvidia" again and see what happens. Thanks.
