Quake3 problems after xorg update
 
I recently updated from xfree86 to xorg, and everything went fine, or so I thought...
Here's the output from quake3:

// BEGIN QUOTE
...loading libGL.so.1: Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 3: 640 480

I should mention that the Nvidia drivers load on startup as they should, so I'm really a bit confused as to what xorg did to it.
I tried going back to xfree86 but no such luck, now it refuses to install xfree86.

If anyone knows how to go back to xfree, that advice would work just as fine.

Thankful for replies.

do you get
load "glx" from running
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep glx
try installing the latest NVIDIA official drivers

Wohoo!! Its working now!
I re-installed the nvidia drivers "the debian way", and it worked quite perfectly.

Thanks for your help
