GLX missing on Solarix 10 x86


I have built the Mesa libraries but still need the GLX extensions.

The problem is that when i run opengl programs, that's what i get in the console.
"GLX extension missing"

Does any one know a solution?

Are you sure GLX extension is missing ?
Code:
/usr/openwin/bin/xdpyinfo | grep GLX
What X server are you running, Xsun or Xorg ?
One way to see it:
Code:
ptree $(pgrep dtlogin)
What is your graphic card ?

What is the driver used by your X server ?

Here the output from kdmconfig
Code:
         Video Device: Intel Corp. 82815 CGC [Chipset Graphics Controller]
         Video Driver: XF86-I810
    Resolution/Colors: 1024x768 - 256 colors @ 85Hz
          Screen Size: 16-inch (41cm)

         Monitor Type: Plug and Play Mfreq 16 Inch CPQ1366 (up to 1280x1024 @ 60Hz)
Here is exactly how I get this GLx missing thing. I telnet to a remote machine , this machine has the program that uses OpenGL. I start the program and I can't see a thing, the place were I should see the drawing is empty. And when I looked in the console I saw the GLX missing message. I hope I made this clear.

Sorry when i told that i was having GLX and SGI-GLX, I was running this command from a windows box using cygwin. When I ran this command on the solaris x86 machine nothing came up.
