Default Re: Nvidia driver only suport opengl 1.4?

The PDF that you've referenced is 4 years old. Also, you might be confusing the glx version with the OpenGL version. The 1.0-9746 fully supports OpenGL 2.1.0.

Thanks,
Lonni

Just type in console:
Code:
glxinfo | grep version
to see Glx, OpenGL and driver version.

In my case (Geforce 6150) it looks like this:
$ glxinfo | grep version
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx version string: 1.4
GLX version: 1.3
OpenGL version string: 2.1.0 NVIDIA 97.51

Server and client are Nvidia libraries (1.4). GLX 1.3 comes from generic x.org 7.2 install.

You can check from who libraries come:
Code:
$ glxinfo | grep NVIDIA
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL version string: 2.1.0 NVIDIA 97.51
