Question New Redhat Beta Phoebe

I just want to try the new beta from Redhat. Hmm They polished the product a bit. Now it includes a nice mouse scheme by default.

Anyway here comes the problem. I tried to install the NVIDIA drivers 4191. And at the first time it installed succesfully but when i tried to start X it went away saying that it get Sig 11 when calling GLXExtensions. Hmm then I tried to remove the "Load glx" from the XF86Config. Bingooo, it simply started, but of course I could not have the OpenGL this time. Then I tried the 3123 and 2802 drivers. But nothing changed in the situation. Did not try the 2880 however.

Ok. Which has the problem? NVIDIA Drivers or the beta X server or me ??? How can I solve the situation?

I wasn't able to get the nvidia driver working with Pheobe (got the same GLX error) until I read your message here and disabled GLX in XF86Config. Right now the only problem I'm experiencing as far as X goes is that it's extremely difficult moving things across the Nautilus background because they take forever to repaint. Is this related to the OpenGL thing being disabled? Before this I was running the latest RH 8.0 beta upgraded to the lated RH 8.0 final and am thinking of just getting the latest RH 8.0 ISOs (as much as I love the new Phoebe curors...) unless there's a way to get this thing working better.

Well I dont have the source code but I think that some X functions and/or X extensions must be related with the NVIDIA GLX library. But dont take my word for it, it is just a guess. Well I realized that my windows movements are a bit slower without GLX. Anyway I hope it will be solved.

So I take it that downloading the src.rpm's and recompiling them didn't help?? (Just a thought)

what is annoying is that I cannot downgrade to XFree version 4.2.0 because that provides libXft.so.1 and all the stuff after the upgrade requires libXft.so.2...

Default fix or something

i switched kernel to 2.4.18-19 (latest update from redhat 8.0) and no more SEGV from X.
however, as will a lot of redhat betas, things got out of hand after.. suddenly my mouse stopped working in quake; altough 3d accel was ok, when i tried to move a window across the screen it was sluggish as hell; and finally the whole rpm database got corrupted or something (and no, it was not about the __db files ).

so i reinstalled 8.0 standard.

Found this on the phoebe mailing list:

https://listman.redhat.com/pipermail...ry/001978.html

' Sounds to me from
reading the bugticket like is yet another threading related bug inside
that 3rd party xmms plugin. Goes away if you use
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5.'

Amazingly, the glx problem also disappears if you define this. I put it in /etc/X11/prefdm:

LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL

This makes the X server start.

Now you also need to put this in your .profile, otherwise any glx program you run wil also crash.

Problem is in both.
Here are the src.rpms you are looking for and small guide how to use it:
