Default Redhat 8, NVidia install ok, but error

I recently installed the NVIDIA driver 4191 on my Redhat 8 system with kernel 2.4.18-24.8.0. Following the readme and the thread started by STEEL1 I was amazed at how easy it was for a rookie like me.

However, I am trying to run Pro/Engineer(CAD software) under Linux and when I try to run it I get the error message:

Required GLX TrueColor Visual Not Available.
Recommend that you put "graphics x_windows" in your config.pro.

Can anyone tell me what the GLX TrueColor Visual is ? I am far from a linux expert so I am not sure what to try next.

Thank You

It should be any 24-bit color mode.

What's your DefaultColorDepth (or DefaultDepth) in your XF86Config set to?

It is currently 16 bit color. I will try setting it to 24 bit as you suggest.

Thank You

Switching to 24 bit color solved my problem.

Thank you very much for your help. This forum has been extremely helpful.
