Default GLX Problems with 4496

I've been trying to get my NVIDIA GeForce2 MX to work for some time now. I have installed the latest driver according the instructions on the NVIDIA website. I used the .run script and everything worked for the most part. However, I have an error in my log file that reads like this:

(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1280x1024@60Hz:0"
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled


I have included my XF86Config file. There was an instruction file on the nvidia website that I used to validate the installations correctly. The only thing that bothered me was that there apparently is no support in my gcc for TLS which I find strange. I'm using gcc-3.2.2 and Slackware 9.0.

Currently, when I try to run a program that uses OpenGL such as glxgears or xscreensaver, the X server restarts itself and brings me back to gdm. This is extremely annoying.

Any help you can give is great

I also just found this in my XFree86.0.log -


(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a
(II) Module glx: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading sub module "GLcore"
(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a
(II) Module GLcore: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading extension GLX


Is that right? The README made no mention of libglx.a, just libglx.so.x.y.z and libglx.so.

Should vendor = NVIDIA instead of XFree86?

Ok I finally fixed it.


The solution was to mv or rename the libGLX.a file and everything got fixed. Apparently XF86 must default to using the .a file instead of the .so file. Once that was gone, it found the .so and automatically used it instead. Now everything works perfectly.
