Exclamation Open GL Issue (Monitor issue solved)


Hi,

My first post and rightfully so my first install of MDK 8.1

I just installed it yesterday and I'm been getting help from some friends but I've got 'em stumped on a couple of things. First and most annoying is my monitor.

It must be a refresh rate issue because at default it will somtimes make this EXTREMELY high pitch noise which gives me the biggest headache

I changed the refresh by editing a config to 75Hz and it SEEMS to be working but sometimes it just wait for a while until you're comfortable then strikes and pokes a hole through your brain. Any idea what could be causing this bizarre thing?

EDIT: Monitor Issue seem to be solved but OpenGL issue is still there


Secondly, I installed the Nvidia drivers and I get the logo on boot but I can't seemt to run anything that require OpenGL it just doesn't do anything. As far as I know it's installed fine especially because the logo appears when loging X, any ideas?

Thanks for all the help! By the way I'm a total

As for OpenGL, make sure your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file has a line in it where it loads glx, it will look like;

Load glx

Make sure that Load dri does not exist or is (#) commented out also.

As for the monitor, mine did that also, annoying as all heck until I got my refresh rates in the correct range and setting things at a higher res. & size.

That's ok. As long as Load DRI and Load GLcore aren't there. Did you find Load glx? If it's not there add it per the NVidia install guide for the Mandrake distro. That's the best file to make sure everything is in there right, if GL apps aren't working after that, it could be the app you are trying to run and it being configured improperly or not supported by Linux etc...

Yep load "glx" is there:

Section "Module"

# This loads the DBE extension module.

Load "glx"
Load "dbe"


As you can see it's there and the other two commands aren't. I can't find 'em in the config anywhere which I suppose is good.

But no OpenGL

There is a line in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 that says 'driver "nv"' or something like that, change the nv to nvidia
That could be the problem
