Default GLX not supported / problem retrieving GLX from server

NVIDIA X Server Settings -- OpenGL/GLX Information says: "The OpenGL extension GLX is not supported by the X server or there was a problem retrieving GLX information from the X server." I would really like to get this working in order to use beryl.

Please see the attached bug-report and suggest what I must install or correct to get this working for my GeForce2 on Fedora core 6.

Default Re: GLX not supported / problem retrieving GLX from server

The error is here:
(EE) GLX is not supported with the Composite extension

I'm afraid that Composite is not supported in the 1.0-71xx legacy driver branch. You can override this with the AllowGLXWithComposite driver option, however its expected that you will encounter functionality & stability problems. See the driver README for more information.

thanks,
Lonni

Thank you so much.
I was able to get beryl to work by putting these in Section "Device"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
