RH9 Nvidia driver upgrade from 5336 to 6106, GLX problems
I have attempted to update the Nvidia driver from the 5336 release to the 6106 for the IA32 on RH9. When I reboot the screen blacks out and I have to revert back to a generic XF86Config using the VESA driver with a resolution of 800x600. I have tried playing with a lot of options and I have read the install readme, the original XF86Config has the "load glx", and the driver set to "nvidia", along with the "load dri" removed.
The problem seems to be with the GLX libraries not being loaded properly.
I also keep getting the error when I run with the generic vesa driver:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
The KDE crash handler also keeps popping up once I log in. When I do a trace it seems
to be related to a glx command... big surprise there.
I also did a ldd on the glxgears to show all my link paths. I have checked that all the libs and links are correct to the best of my knowledge.
"XF86Config.0.log" - when using VESA driver has the error
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA X driver not found)
"XF86Config.log.old.txt" - the log created when I try to use the config that worked with the Nvidia 5336 driver has the error
(II) Initializing extension GLX

I am newb to Linux so any help would be greatly appreciated I have spent way too much time trying to figure this one out.
