Lost GLX after doing system updates ?!?


I did system updates yesterday and everything seemed fine till I noticed that none of my GLX screensavers were coming up! I opened a Konsole and ran glxgears and sure enough, something is messed up:

[eric@localhost ~]$ glxgears
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
[eric@localhost ~]$


Everything was working before and would usually get about 1250fps, now...nothing. So what did I break and how do I fix it?
I am using:

Mandriva 2007.1
Nvidia GeForce4 MX440

I have the drivers from nvidia.com installed, in fact I reinstalled it just in case...no luck. From my xorg.conf here are the two sections:


Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection

...
...
...


Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 3 - GeForce 4 (96xx)"
EndSection

********************

Note: The nvidia drivers tries to make Driver "nvidia" under the "Device" section. If that is there, then X just won't start up. I have found with all versions of Mandriva and this Nvidia card, it has to be "nv".

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

If you put "nv" in your driver section, then you are not using the official nvidia driver. What you are using is the opensource driver that does not support GLX. How did you install the official nvidia driver and whats the problem when you try to use it.

When I installed the drivers, here is the sequence I followed and what happened:

1) DL driver from nvidia site: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run
2) Rebooted in command prompt as root
3) Ran sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run
4) Let it go through with installation including updating xorg.conf. Ended with a successfully installation message.
5) startx -- Fails with the message at the bottom of the log below.
It gives the famous "(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration." error.
6) If I change xorg.conf as shown before... nv instead of nvidia, then x starts right up.

What I don't understand from what you were saying though, is that I have always had to make it nv instead of nvidia. You said that glx would not work with nv, but I know for sure that it was as nv in the past and glx was working as I could run glxgears and all the nice screensavers. What am I missing there? Also, do you have ANY idea of how doing system updates could have messed this up?

Here is the output of the log from when I have it as nvidia. X does not start when I do it this way. Thanks for your help.

Among the updates, was there an updated version of the kernel? If there was, then you have to reinstall the nvidia driver.

If the kernel was updated, did the kernel-sources get updated too?

<edit> do uname -a to see the current kernel version info, then take a peek at /usr/src/ and see if the same version is there. The linux link should link to the relevant kernel source.</edit>

To have glx effects using nv driver, you will need dkms-nvidia, "dynamic-kernel-module-service" to load the module at startup.

dkms is used for other services too. like fuse, virtualbox etc.

I did have DKMS-nvidia running...and I did update the kernel to the latest along with the source for it.

Anyway, my brother just gave me his old video card ATI 9200 (128MB), I put that in my system and did a re-install of the OS just so I could clean up the system and get the ATI dirver installed. I know it probably is not the best way to do it, but at least everything is cleaned up now. Everything is now working good with the new card and all updates are current to the system. I would have continued on the nvidia, but getting a new card with twice the memory and a couple years newer than the old was too good to pass up. Thanks again for the help.

I ran glxgears with the new install and video card and was seeing about 2850 fps. So it is faster than the old nv card I had (apx 1250 fps). One question though...is there any kind of benchmark out there to let me know if I am truely seeing the full speed of the card or not? Does 2850 sound correct? I'm happy that it is more than double the fps as the nvidia...just want to know if it is going as fast as possible?

Thanks again for the help.
