Unhappy XFree86 version GLX error

Ok, I have the very latest stable XFree86. Its 4.2.1 I believe. Thats installed ok. When I try to install the latest Nvidia linux drivers it barfs on the GLX rpm saying that it needs an XFree86 version greater than 4.0.1. Now, I have XFree86 greater than 4.0.1, so whats the deal?!?!

Thanks for the help,

Old GLman

It's checking your RPM database as its reference for dependencies. You can avoid that by passing '--nodeps' to rpm when you install. Alternatively, you can use the GLX source tarball.
