Default libGL.so missing

Going nuts getting drivers to work. All seems well with glxinfo, cat agp/status cat/card and fps up to 7000 in glxgears (nvidia 5200 128mb card + 3000xp amd). Only thing is crashes occurring playing tux or bzflag - mouse refuses to work needs reboot. Have installed drivers 2 or 3 times and glx but libGL.so does not appear anywhere on my system. I know i have to get it from the glx package and install it but how and will this stop crashes. Any ideas welcome

Certain things say they need that file as a dependency, but they really don't. However, if you install that file, you'll interfere with the nVidia drivers.

As part of installing, you need to remove the MESA drivers.
rpm -e --nodeps --allmatches xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL
Later if you install something than says it needs that as a dependency and it gets reinstalled, you not only need to remove it again, you also have to reinstall the nVidia drivers as some of it's files got whacked by MESA. Every time MESA installs, uninstall it and reinstall the nVidia drivers or face a life of woe.
