i did the whole change to runlevel 3, and run the binary provided by nvidia, then update my XF86Config to load the new driver.

when the X-server starts, the nvidia logo is displayed.

is, so i assumed i had completed the installation.

where can i find this GLX ?

ill just assume nvidia.com.

ill try that thanx for the quick reply.

lol,

yeah, thats always the answer.

i wouldnt mind using source if i werent so damn lazy and kept track of what i have and have not installed

rpm -q is a godsend :P

thanX (again)

the strange thing is, is that UT2003 runs fine on my system, and its an OpenGL game. ohh well.

thanx again for the help.

#error linux/malloc.h is deprecated, use linux/slab.h instead.

Try changing all occurences of the
#include <linux/malloc.h>
to
#inlcude <linux/slab.h> and then run the make process.

question: I have an Nvidia GForce2 and I'm running rh9. I install the nvidia driver everytime I do a kernel update. Is the opengl driver (two parts: NVIDIA_Kernel and NVIDIA_GLX) different from this? I know I have opengl because when I install from source ./configure sees opengl. Just curious.

hmm, if i'm correct the 2 parts (NVIDIA_Kernel and NVIDIA_GLX) were what was used a while ago. Now they just have the .run file. I believe they are the same thing but the new way only has one file.

yeah, i used the new .run way.
i tried the old way because the new way didnt seem to work.

but it turned out my problem was a package i was trying to install gave VERY missleading dependancy information!!!!

when it said... Your system does not support openGL...
what it meant was, upgrade glut-devel
