GLX / CentOS4 Issue


I was installing Wine from the fedora extensions and I got an error like the following:
Code:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":2.0"
So I have tried to find something with yum that I can install to help with this but I have not found anything. Wine seems to be working perfectly, except no fonts are displayed (e.g. the dialog buttons have no text nor is there any text in any Wine window). Functionally it seems to be OK and other Linux windows are fine (they display text). Any ideas what may be going wrong and How I might fix it?

Thnx in advance.

yum install xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL xorg-x11-Mesa-libGLU xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-devel

This should automatically add the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs rpm package also.

Haha - great, thats exactly what I was trying to find in yum, but I guess I did something wrong. OK, so I did as you suggested but . . . the wine dialog text still doesn't show.

I even uninstalled wine, reset the system, re-installed wine (with the new packages installed already), I didn't get the errors this time, but still no wine dialog text :-/

Any other ideas?

OK, I re-read your first post, you got wine from the Fedora Extras but did not say for which version of Fedora you are attempting to use (does not matter much anyhow). This is basically not a good idea, the binary rpms are build for Fedoda Core X and may present problems when installed in another OS.

You can find wine rpms for CentOS here;
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ckage_id=77396

If you want a newer version the get the src.rpm file and build your own (much safer and easier to use), for example the src.rpm files from Fedora Developement (what RHEL5 is being based, really FC6 is the base, on BTW);

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...-1.fc6.src.rpm

aiight - sweet, thnx i'll give it a shot.

I was under the impression all the centOS wine stuff did come from fedora (kinda i guess what you are saying as well) - so I just found someone who had gave a link to the fedora extras as if those had the proper CentOS wine support. I'll try to see if that is the same resource you are giving as the proper CentOS wine support.

So, I dont know what fedora core it came from, I just added the repository and yum'ed it in.

Guess it gets confusing.

One of the functions of Fedora Core is to be the proving grounds for what goes into Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Many of the packages from FC6 install directly into the current RHEL5Beta1, in fact many of the rpms in RHEL5Beta1 have rpm filenames with fc6 in them.

One of the reasons one does not install binary rpms from Fedora Core are the supporting libs (gcc and so on) are different then that supplied with RHEL (or CentOS in this case) which can cause problems, some minor some more so. Rebuilding the src.rpm files resolves most of these problems since the resulting binary rpm packages have the proper libs support for the OS.
