Angry Can't link OpenGL applications after update (FC5, Livna)

I am aware that NVIDIA is not responsible for something that pretty clearly is a packaging problem by others, but if someone can tell me what SHOULD be linked here, it would be very helpful.

System: four processor Xeon dual cores, graphics Quadro FX 3500, OS Fedora Core 5 x86_64, latest updates using yum and the usual repositories (including livna). The following nvidia related packages are installed:

kmod-nvidia-96xx.x86_64 1.0.9631-4.2.6.18_1.22 installed
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-96xx.x86_64 1.0.9631-5.lvn5 installed
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-96xx-devel.x86_64 1.0.9631-5.lvn5 installed
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-96xx-libs-32bit.x86_ 1.0.9631-5.lvn5 installed

The problem may have started when a recent update installed a new xorg-x11. I was trying to build a very large and complex program, and it failed a configuration test saying it could not find a working OpenGL.

As a simpler test I tried to compile glxgears.c, with the following results:

> gcc -o glxgears glxgears.c -lGL
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.1.1/../../../../lib64/libGL.so:
undefined ref erence to `_nv000039gl'
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.1.1/../../../../lib64/libGL.so:
undefined ref erence to `_nv000038gl'
/usr/lib64/nvidia/libGLcore.so.1: undefined reference to `_nv000015gl'

The symlinks I checked for the nvidia libraries seemed to be in place. Can somebody tell me which library is supposed to be satisfying the references to the '_nv0000nngl' that the linker is complaining about? With that pointer I can probably solve this.

Thank you,

Correction, some symlinks are definitely wrong. However, /usr/lib64/nvidia/libGLcore.so is symlinked to the file which should match the currently installed driver, and it is still missing one of the symbols.

It sounds like time to use the NVIDIA install procedures . . .

Livna causes no end of problems. Try removing all the livna junk and running the latest nvidia installer. Hopefully livna didn't cause any permanent damage.
