Default About the new automatic installer...

Does the application that installs the nvidia linux driver also install the GLX package used for OpenGL?

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure.

libGLcore.so.1 is in there right?
The other day when I tried to install an rpm package (i think it was xawtv) it said it didn't find that module (don't ask me why i need openGL to watch tv.. ) ayway, if it is in there, i'll probably just force its installation.

Yes, libGLcore.so.1 is a link to libGLcore.so.1.0.4496 which is created by the nvidia installer, usually in /usr/lib.

If you want to use winex and other warte need to compile to use opengl you will need libMesa-devel (libMesaGLU1-devel and libMesaglut3-devel)

Default hum...

The opengl headers are provided with the nvidia driver. You need a GLUT implementation. Search on freshmet.net. You must install a glu implementation too. I think SGI is in charge of it.

Don't worry, the rest is all covered.

Thanks
