Default libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000008gl

I have successfully compiled and installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.24 video card driver on my Linux x86-64 box with 2.6.34 Kernel, and the NVidia driver works fine with X11 for standard graphics.

However... GL doesn't work. I get "libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000008gl"
when I try to run any application that uses GL. I have copied libGL.so.195.36.24 and libGL.la to /usr/lib64, and I've deleted all previous libGL modules. My previous version of the NVidia driver, 185, worked OK with GL but not 195. Any suggestions ?

are you running 32bit application? Have you installed 32bit OpenGL libraries?

Why don't you use NVIDIA installer?

This error indicates that the incorrect version of libGLcore.so.1 is being picked up from somewhere. Please run `ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo` and see which libGLcore.so.1 it's using. If it's in a nonstandard location, please figure out where the stale version came from and uninstall it.

You might have better luck if you stick with your Linux distribution's driver packages.
