Default Slackware 10 problem

Firstly, warning: I am new to linux...

When I did the driver install, I got a message saying that there was a conflict with rivafb, but the install said it completed successfully. I read in a post here that the installer always says the warning about rivafb whether you have it or not.

I did some reading and found a post where someone said that typing lsmod|grep rivafb would tell me whether it was a module that was loading or not. When I type that, there is no reply from the command line... it just brings up a fresh input line like nothing happened. Does this mean that I don't have rivafb?

I ran startx and everything came up normal. I got excited. However, when I tried to test a GL screensaver, nothing would happen. So I ran the screensaver from the command line and here's the message I get:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
gltext: display ":0.0" does not support the GLX extension.

Where should I go from here? I'm a bit lost.

Also, I noticed when I was editing my xorg.conf file, there was more info than just the Driver "nv" (I did change that to "nvidia") that was there before. Something about an Identifier and also a setting for the amount of RAM in the video card. Should I worry about editing these too?

Thanks!

well I guess, you've forgotten to add in in > Section "Module" <
"load "glx"

(when you already in xorg.conf. look out for > load "dri" < and > load "GLcore" <
and remove them... )

Don't worry about them. ...

Please also take a look at:
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...629/README.txt

or look in /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/ (there should also be a sample xorg.conf/XF86Config-4 file)...
