Question [slackware]Video mode and GLX


Hello
I have to questions about my linux slackware 9.1.
The first things is the video mode.
Evry time i boot my linux slackware it says at the very beginning:
Quote:
You passed in an undefined mode number.Press <RETURN> to see video modes avaible, <SPACE> to continue or wait 30 seconds.
So my questions is, how can i configure my video mode.

And my second questions is: "How can I install GLX?", because some times it complaines about GLX(ie when i start GIMP, or ut it shuts ut down).
I already searched in my packages(kpackage) but i couldn't find it.

Thanx Hylke

Easy problem to solve. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config and find a line :

# Load "glx"

Remove that hash symbol to uncomment, restart X, and there you go, no more glx complaints.
