D'oh! You're right. I removed the i686 folder I had created and then removed the /usr/X11R6/lib/tls directory and ran ldconfig. Same amount of extentions and Direct Rendering is enabled.

gotcha!

you dont need any of the i686 dirs created by
the older xfree installs any more.

looking at your output of glxinfo
you have all extensions available.
should perform pretty well now.
and dont forget to delete the dir again
when upgrading to a new xfree-mesa-libgl package.

Default XFree86-DRI missing

The "fix" you posted does not work for users of SUSE Linux.

/usr/lib/tls does not exit in SUSE 9 installations.

I would greatly appreciate a solution suggestion(s)

I have found that mesa is installed and the libGLU stuff that mandrake must install by default when installing XFree86 server.
I went to remove them but it also wanted to remove several other packages, perl being one of them. Should I just try uninstalling the mesa stuff and then re install perl?

"remove the /usr/X11R6/lib/tls dir" I checked this directory on my system and its empty.
The really weird thing is that glxgears still runs and at a frame rate comparable to the 5336 driver (which had direct rendering on)
How do I get mandrake 10 to use the nvidia files instead of the mesa files that it has installed. Removing them isnt an option as it wants to take half of kDE with it.

Talking Re: XFree86-DRI missing with XFree86-4.3.0.-17 and up solved

Please disregard my previous post. I must be blind The usr/X11R6/lib/tls directory did have 2 files in it. Removed the tls directory and problem solved.
