Default Suse 8.2 GLX file is missing. Locking Up

Problems here. Downloaded Nvidia shell 4349. Installed shell in runuser 3, (not running x). Preformed a "switch2nvidia" command. Configured in Sax2. When I try to startx the system freezes up never comes out of it. Power down to reboot. Back to runuser 3. Check glxinfo I get:

name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

What happens if you set up the config files manually, rather than using SaX2?

The .run file doesn't work with SaX2 (or so I hear, anyway...); this is why nVidia provides the (SuSE-built) RPMs also on their FTP site.

I just installed SuSE 8.2 and the new drivers on a Dell laptop with "GeForce2 Go" and it works just (fine after I realized the "turn-off-display" bug in the new drivers and compensated for that).

I uses Yast2 to do the installation and then run Sax2 to setup the XF86Config .

You need to give a little bit more information:

1. Do a `ls -l /usr/lib/libGL*`and make sure the links point to the 1.0.4349 libraries
2. Run `startx -- -logverbose 5`and post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log in a posting. Check for any errors when loading the GLX module
3. Have you checked that your XF86Config has the "Load glx" in the Modules section ?

Check it out. I've even tried changing the Identifer to 'NV AGP'. Still get the hang up.

The identifiers (all throughout the config file) have exactly zero influence on anything. They're only there to identify certain section instances to other sections.

For example, your ServerLayout section is referencing Screen "Screen[0]". This is the only thing that cares about what the Identifier in the screen sections is -- it'll bind this ServerLayout to the Screen section that has an Identifier "Screen[0]" in it.

Changing the Identifier in your Device section will (at best) do nothing different, and (at worst) make the X startup fail because the Screen section can no longer find its Device.

Does it help to get rid of the v4l module, in your Modules section?

Does it help to get rid of all the unused stuff in your Device section as well, like VendorName, BoardName, and BusID? None of these should be required, except for BusID, and that one only is if you have more than one video card. And make SURE you change "nv" to "nvidia" -- it's still "nv" here.

Post a log file, too, from right after changing all this stuff (and the driver back to "nvidia"). Make the changes, shut down X (do this from runlevel 3, BTW -- if a display manager is running, that might screw stuff up), then startx, then (after the lockup) reboot to runlevel 3 again, and cp /var/log/XFree86.0.log .

Then change the config file back (or do whatever you have been doing to read these boards) and attach the log file that you copied to your home directory.

Thanks for the help everyone. I did some reading and found out about the "IgnoreDisplayDevices" option that is missing in my xf86config. Working fine now. Thanks again. Sorry for the delay on responding. Was Sick.
