Default Trouble with Linux emulation [97.46]

Hi,
I've got a problem with the Linux emulation with update driver.
The installation goes perfect, but i cannot run any OpenGL Linux application.

In /usr/compat/linux environment, glxinfo gives me just this line:

NVIDIA: failed to execute '/sbin/modprobe': no such file or directory

and freeze.
The trouble seems to be related with libGL.so. If the link point to original DRI libGL.so.1.2 it run, but with just a partially accelerated rendering (glx server -> Nvidia, glx client -> SGI). If the link point to the right libGL.so.1.0.9746, nothing works.
By the way, native FreeBSD application works perfectly
Any help?
Thanks

Unhappy Re: Trouble with Linux emulation [97.46]

update: i tried a fresh BSD installation and all drivers available, 9755, legacy and beta.
Nothing works. Native applications are perfect, but Linux emulation is broken
Anyone can use it?

You'll only run into this problem if you run Linux applications as root. You can work around it by linking /compat/linux/sbin/modprobe to /bin/true.
