GLX not loading with VNC on RHE5


On Red Hat Enterprise 5 I have the following set up.

-VNC session for a remote admin that loads upon boot. That is working great, no errors what so ever.

-Installed the latest Nvidia drivers from their website and configured those properly.

However when the admin runs glxinfo from a command line he receives the following error message

Quote:
"[root@localhost ~]# glxinfo
name of display: :1.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual

visual x bf lv rg d st colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer ms cav
id dep cl sp sz l ci b ro r g b a bf th cl r g b a ns b eat
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
0x22 24 tc 1 0 0 c . . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None"
When I run the same command at the local console I receive no errors. Load "glx" is uncommented and seems fine however it seems like the error is that VNC is not loading GLX for the session?

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Here is a link to fix this at redhats site. I tried it and it works fine for me. One note if you just want a user to login substitute the the password file with a users password file instead of roots. The console login screen will come up after the initial vnc password. And you need to be running at runlevel 5 in /etc/initab.

This works in both rh 5 and rh4 however it should work in most linux distros.
