Question OpenGL vendor string: ATI on RHEL with Qaudro FX3450???

Howdy, we have a Dell Precission 690 with an nVidia Quadro FX3450 video card.

I didn't install this system but I've been tasked with getting a graphics app called FieldView Advanced Tech Viewer running on the system. ATViewer has the following requirements that, according to glxinfo, the system doesn't yet meet:
* GL_ARB_fragment_program
* GL_ARB_vertex_program
* OPENGL driver must be version 1.3 or greater
* When running using LINUX, Direct Rendering must be set to ON.

So, I figured I had better install the latest nVidia vid driver.

The OS is RHEL 4 WS update 4 and is running 64bit with kernel:
2.6.9-5.ELsmp

I installed the 9755 nvidia driver using:
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run

When I run the command:
# glxinfo
It reports:
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X600 x86/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (2.0.5077 WinXP Release)

Am I missing something or is glxinfo just messed up? Doesn't OpenGL get installed with the nVidia drivers, or is this a completely separate installation?

Also, I still don't see these two in the output: GL_ARB_fragment_program and
GL_ARB_vertex_program

Here's the full output of glxinfo

This suggests that you're "ssh"ed into the machine and have X forwarding enabled (ssh uses display 10 as the default for forwarding). Try setting the DISPLAY environment variable to ":0", i.e.:

export DISPLAY=:0

(if you're using bash), and running glxinfo again.

Dang, It never dawned on me that glxinfo was pulling that information form my local system.

You were correct. I ended up hiking over to the machine and running the command, glxinfo looks a heck of a lot different (all of the expected options and then some) and OpenGL 2.x rather than 1.2.

Thanks,

Mike
