Angry couldnt load glx module

Hi
I have a problem loading the glx module in the Xfree 86, I am new to linux and am not sure what has gone wrong

I installed suse using a default driver, I then downloaded and ran the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
installation program. It told me to use SaSx 2 to run the driver but in SaSx 2 It wouldnt work So I tried to edit the XF86Config file.
I checked the log file and it said it couldnt load the glx module I dont know why I think its there.

the following files i found in the glx folder
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdbe.a
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri.a
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libextmod.a
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0.5328
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/librecord.a
file:/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libxtrap.a

system details:
linux distribution:SUSE 8.2
graphic card:Nvidia geforce 3 Ti 200 video card
driver version:NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
processor: pentum 4 1.8 Ghz

Am not sure what motherboard I have but it is a dell computer

I would be greatfull for any help advice anyone could offer
thanks
cormac

I haven't had much luck with Sax2 either. It seemed to change things around in ways that the driver didn't want, like glx in your case. the key in the XF86Config file is to make sure you are using the 'nvidia' driver, not the 'nv' or 'fbdev'. Check the readme on nvidia's site to see what options exist for the driver too, if you want to change those.

as to the glx module, you have it, but it is named (for a couple reasons) in such a way it is not being found. run this command:
ln -s libglx.so.1.0.5328 /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
then it will find it. My preference would be to install the driver again so everything gets put back (there are some libraries that use the same link-to-where-X-wants-it method Sax2 might have changed).

Or maybe a newer version of Sax2 would help, if there is one.

key points:
- make sure driver's parts are in the right place (running the driver's install script would do this. mostly harmless )
- use the 'nvidia' Driver in XF86Config, not 'fbdev'.

hope this helps

thanks for the advice It did solve the couldnt load the glx module however unforunately my instalation appears to have more problems. I check the XF86Config file and I am using the nvidia driver. I tried to reinstall the driver but it didnt change anything
the new errors in the log are:

(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument
(==) FBDEV(0): Backing store disabled
(**) RandR enabled
(II) Initializing built-in extension MIT-SHM
(II) Initializing built-in extension XInputExtension
(II) Initializing built-in extension XTEST
(II) Initializing built-in extension XKEYBOARD
(II) Initializing built-in extension LBX
(II) Initializing built-in extension XC-APPGROUP
(II) Initializing built-in extension SECURITY
(II) Initializing built-in extension XINERAMA
(II) Initializing built-in extension XFree86-Bigfont

(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)
(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument
(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument

I tried making a link similar to the one in your last post however it didnt change anything
Any further advice you might have would be great thanks for your help

These errors tell me that your XF86Config still is set to use fbdev rather than nvidia. In your first post, your config does list using fbdev. Change it to nvidia and see what happens.
