Default Re: X server aborts during GLX init. RH9 1.0.6629-pkg1

Uninstalled drivers, reinstalled with --force-tls=classic option. Appears to function identically as with the new card. X locks up at "Initializing extension GLX". X cannot be killed with <CTL><ALT><BS>.

I got curious as to when the drivers got screwed up. As it turns out, the 5336 drivers that I had installed with the MX200 card were the last driver set that worked. Everything from 6106 thru 7167 fails.

This and the crashes with the new-style TLS library suggest there's a problem with your current software installation; are you using the US boxed version of RedHat 9.0? This version is known to ship with a bad kernel and glibc package, which need to be updated for the new-style TLS mechanism to work correctly.

We are indeed using the US boxed version of RedHat 9.0. Because of the nature of the work performed on these machines we can't do a wholesale upgrade of the OS to the current version. I can probably get away with a kernel and glibc upgrade. Could you please point me to some more information on the kernel and glibc problems with RH9? I'll need this to start selling the idea.

Upgraded glibc to 2.3.2-27.9.7. The 7167 drivers now work (I didn't check any of the others). Problem solved. Thanks for your help.
