Default Tell my rpm database I HAVE a libGL.so.1

Is there any way the nvidia installer could update the rpm database when installing so that rpm knows I do have a libGL.so.1 installed?

It's a real pain in the ass that rpm complains everytime I install something that needs libGL.so.1...

You need to sym link it as such.
as root
Code:
# ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.0.4496 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

That's not the problem. The problem is that he had to do an -e --force to get rid of some other OpenGL library (probably an XFree86-Mesa package or something). Now, whenever he installs any RPM package that depends on /usr/lib/libGL.so.1, he has to use --nodeps or else it won't install because it THINKS there's no libGL libraries present. All because of the RPM database.

That's exactly right. I erased the XFree86-Mesa-libGL package because it conflicted with my nvidia drivers.

Ever since that everything works like a charm except installing/upgrading new packages needing libGL.so.1 when I have to use --nodeps, which I don't think I should need to since there IS a libGL.so.1 in my system, just rpm doesn't know.
