Default GLX Not Working after clean install??

Just downloaded and installed to a RH 80 machine, Althon 1400, Asus V7100, GeForce 2 MX card.

from console, no X, I ran

rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm

rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel.-1.0-4191.i386.rpm

rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX.1.0-4191.i386rpm

So far so good.

Changed XF86Config (no XF86Config-4) to use "nvidia" instead of "nv"

commented out "load dri"

X will start but clearly no GLX. Tux fails with

"couldnt find matching GLX visual"

and glxinfo gives

"couldnt find RGB GLX visual"

Any help would really be appreciated and heres my XF86Config.

It is possible that you're seeing what I am (problems with libGLcore), but I think checking your X log to make sure would be a good idea.

Anyway, post it (/var/log/XFree86.0.log) as an attachment. Chances are that it will have something about why it failed to load the glx module, and that should give a good idea of where to go from here.

EDIT: never mind, the problem might be that you're in 15-bit color. See if setting both the 15's (in the Screen section) to either 16 or 24 helps.

Default YEAH!!! Working Now

That was it!!! Changed to 16 bit and works great now. glxgears gives me over 1600fps at default size and still 80fps at full screen, 1800x1440. Cool
