Default extension "glx" missing

OK, I installed the new nvidia drivers (4349) and edited my xf86config file to remove the load "dri" and load "GLcore". The load "glx" was already in there. I also changed the driver to nvidia. X works fine, but when I try to run a 3D game, I get:

Xlib: Extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"

I assumed it was because the load "glx" was missing from the xf86config, but its there. What could be wrong. Do I need to add load "glx" to another file, or is it something else.

Im using a Geforce4MX 440 with 128MB of RAM.

I got no errors during install.

Thank you for any help.

Are you sure you're editing the correct XF86Config file? Can you post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file?

You also need to add the following line to you XF86Config file.

Load "extmod" # 3D Extensions

I solved it. There was a space between load dri and load glx. For some reason, that was stopping it from working. Does anyone know why a space would do that.
