Default 2.6, Debian Sid and libc 2.3.2.ds1-10. GLX error (about TLS...).


I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.6, and compiled nvidia drivers patched with www.minion.de code (following the procedure from that web). Then, I also copied the various TLS binaries to their locations. But xfree doesn't load the GLX extension:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1: undefined symbol: __gl_tls_var0
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so

(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 135874371)

Other modules load correctly, and xfree is usable (no quake, of course :-P ).

In case of using the no-TLS version, the X screen remains black and the consoles freeze with at half bright tone (though the system is responsive).

Option "NvAGP" "0"

* Debian Unstable/Sid
* libc6 2.3.2.ds1-10 (I have searched through varous web sites and mailing lists and it seems to be a problem related to the last versions of libc -though libc mantainers passed "the ball" to the nvidia package mantainers. Tsk, tsk, closed source is not a good thing...-).
* xfree86-common 4.2.1-14
* xserver-xfree86 4.2.1-14
* Linux 2.6.0-test11

Hey get the following www.minion.de and do

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg#.tar.gz --extract-only

I had to actually go into the NVIDIA-?? directory and issue a make install
and that copied all of the necessary lib's.

Forget about it. I just reinstalled it and now it runs fine.

-apply # patch
-apply diff patch
-make install

Q3 (I have only tried this one so far) had also the same problem with libc6, so I had to execute quake3 +set vm_game 2 +set vm_cgame 2 +set vm_ui 2.
