Default help...mandrake8.2 + 3123 driver rpms

When I try to install NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.mdk82up.i586.rpm (the one the NVchooser.sh told me) I get an error message:

error: failed dependecies:

kernel >= 2.2.0 is needed by NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.mdk82up
rpm >= 3.0.4 is needed by NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.mdk82up
/bin/sh is needed by NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.mdk82up

My kernel is 2.4.18
My rpm is 4.0.3
I am not sure what the last line means...but I did run the NVchooser.sh.

Anyone have any ideas?

Default Don't use NVChooser

just do a plain rpm -ivh NVIDIA* --force --nodeps

Default ok...

Well, I forced the install of both RPMs, the kernel first, then the GLX, now when I try to run an OpenGL program (which uses the glut library also) I get

GLUT: Fatal Error in lesson5: OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display : :0.0

Looks like you're not loading GLX. Please post a copy of your /var/log/XFree86.0.log and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 files.

Ah, I made the changes from the README, and I forgot to include the Load "glx". It works

Thank you
