Can't find libgile2x.so


Firstly I am running RedHat 7.3. I recently downloaded XFree86 4.2.0 binaries and installed them, all went fine with this. However my problem now is that apon configuring with XFree86 -configure I receive The error:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Could not load the shared library file for Glide: "libglide2x.so"!

You need to have Glide installed to run the glide driver for XFree86.
Also, you need to tell XFree86 where the libglide2x.so file is placed
by making a soft link in the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules directory that points
to the libglide2x.so file. For example (if your libglide2x.so file is in
/usr/lib):

# ln -s /usr/lib/libglide2x.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The real problem appears to that I have libglide3x.so not libglide2x.so. xfree86.org suggested looking here http://glide.xxedgexx.com/3DfxRPMS.html this link is no longer functional. I have attemped to find it online in many places (including RedHat) and have had no luck. All that said I was wondering if anyone could send me in the right dirrection to find libglide2x.so or any other solution.
Thanks in advance

have you tried just making a soft link from libglide2x.so -> libglide3x.so? just run

ln -s libglide3x.so libglide2x.so

the packages might not be very version dependant. i'd give it about a 1 in 4 chance of working...

...course i'd also give my estimation a 1 in 10 chance of being accurate .

I also tried that URL and after a while I discovered it had changed to : http://glide.xxedgexx.com/oldsite/Gl....46-1.i386.rpm
Just hope this will do the job. I'm facing the same error message as you did and I have RedHat 7.0 on my Siemens-Nixdorf Scenic Mobile 500. As I'm just about to go on vacation, I'll have to be patient to try out if it works. Although I haven't got much hope... why would XFree86 need Glide if there isn't any 3D-card installed???

Thumbs up found libgile2x.so

It was about two days later when I found libglide2x.so in a random tarball I downloaded. I put it in /lib (I think) linked it up and now am using XFree86 with no problems. Don't know it was that I found it but I can send it to you if you'd like.

Cool

No need to do that, thanks. After a couple of sleepless nights I managed to get XFree86 4.2.0 working and I could throw away my old version 4.0.1. Unfortunately it didn't solve the real problem I was facing, which was the only reason I got myself into the trouble of trying to upgrade.
