Not sure what command you suggested, but after much googling it does seem
that many people have problems with mepis6.5/nvidia legacy glx driver/3d.
I tried using fluxbox and that had all text missing, also quake2 runs fine
with SDL OpenGL video, but not with OpenGL GLX which I guess is the 3d prob.
I've just installed mepis 6.0 kernel 2.6.15-26-386 nvidia-glx driver and
all apps inc fluxbox work normally, but quake still only works with SDL OpenGL (not sure what that can tell you).
Sorry to keep referring to quake but it's the only way I can think of to test OpenGL.
