Default nVidia "OpenGL/GLX Information" crashes X

With nVidia 100.14.19 on MacBook Pro 17 Hi-Res, Fedora 7 install, X server quits immediately if I do as follows:

(1) Start Applications - NVIDIA X Server Settings

(2) Click on OpenGL/GLX Settings

setting kernel option pci=nommconf does not make any difference.

Default Re: nVidia "OpenGL/GLX Information" crashes X

Most likely other programs like glxinfo are crashing too. The problem is:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3

X is loading its own libglx.so instead of nvidia's this is causing your troubles. Reinstalling the nvidia drivers should fix it.

Thanks so much for the speedy reply!

In fact your observation led me to the solution, which is to enter the following commands:

Code:
cd /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/
sudo mv libglx.so libglx.so.bak
sudo ln -s libglx.so.100.14.19 libglx.so
Everything seems to be working fine now.
