I am having an opengl problem


I latest nvidia driver installed. Video card is nvidia geForce 9400 gt 512 mb ram. CPu is AMD Phenom x4 9500. Motherboard is Gigabyte gm-ma785 something another.

Please comment dri on section Module and try again to see if that works. Do NOT comment GLX module though

However what would that mean commenting out dri section. Would that mean I wont play games such as Unreal 2004? Or Neverwinter Nights?

a few questions first
did you use the RECOMMENDED way of installing that driver ?
use YOUR package manager and install the one provided by YOUR distro
-- what is your distro ???

or did you use the nvidia.run from the nvidia web site ?

THERE is a difference between the two

Use either 'nvidia-settings' or 'nvidia-xconfig' as root to generate an xorg.conf. However, if you are running a new distro, you can just delete 'xorg.conf' or just leave the part that tells it to use the nvidia driver.

By any means no. nvidia driver is not compatible with dri module, but with glx. If you enable both, chances are driver is not gonna work properly when coming to glx (AKA 3D)

I'm curious - why do you want Open GL for using *Maya*? Just for the viewport? You do know that your *Renders* won't speed up any more if you use your 3D card, right?

I dont have any viewports in maya...they are just grey with no grid or anything. In other words no viewports at all. This is why I suspect an openGl proglem
