Question GLX error with 1.0.8756

since i've installed nvidia drivers today

(gentoo: nvidia-kernel, nvidia-glx, both version 1.0.8756)

GLX module fails to load. what's strange, xorg doesn't crash, it just leaves EE in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. what's even more strange, this EE remains there even after disabling glx module in xorg.conf.

Load "glx" loads software glx, (quake1 at 0,5fps)...

the problem does not occure with driver version 8178.

i use kernel 2.6.15.

is there any way to make it work?

Thumbs up Re: GLX error with 1.0.8756

well, it seems like it was my mistake, gentoo distro specific.

# eselect opengl set nvidia

solves the problem.

anyway, translucency in kde 3.5.2 doesn't work with opengl software, but i don't think it's driver fault. i don't know. gliv image viewer doesn't work at all when kde translucency is enabled. it tries to display something, but it's just some squares on kde panel. i think it's rather kde fault itself.

anyway, quake1 now has 176.7 FPS on DEMO1
