Default A few problems...

Hey guys, I've been a loyal nVidia fan since my geforce 2 GTS, and I'm having a few problems using my GeForce FX cards in RedHat Linux 9 and RawHide. The drivers install fine, or compile fine. 2D is great (as far as I can tell...) but OpenGL doesn't seem to work right. Sometimes it will work once, then it won't work again. I keep getting the same error message:

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

What causes this type of error?

The other problem I am having is the framebuffer. I try and add vga=791 to my grub.conf, and only the FX line cards show nothing. GeForce 4 and lesser show the fb fine, but the FX cards have a black screen.

Any help is appreciated. Let me know if any config files or output is needed. Thanks.

Default DRI and frame buffer...

The native nvidia driver do not support the frame buffer and DRI is not used by the opengl driver.
Do not use the frame buffer with the nvidia driver.
If your opengl libs ask for DRI... that means the installation of the opengl driver are stuffed... you still have the wrong one installed.
I reckong you should reinstall the nvidia driver again. Don't forget to keep the log file of the installer. If it is still wrong: post here the log of the installer, the log of xfree and you XF86Config file, thx.
