Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".


Hello. Wanted to play a game I downloaded for Drake 10.1 called chromium. I recieved this error.

[me@here myself]$ chromium
WARNING: could not read config file (/home/jeremy/.chromium)

I have a
generic NVidia NV17 GeForce4MX 440.

I am not a big gamer, but I was bored wanted to play a game and well I can't. Is there a way to fix this?
I guess I should add my display is fine as it is now, it's just that I can't play this game.
