Error?


"Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

Am I in trouble now?

No: enable GLX module in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.

What card? What driver?
Perhaps the driver you're using doesn't support the GLX extension.

Have you downloaded drivers from Nvidia? I'm pretty sure that no standard Linux distribution includes drivers that will allow you to use GLX. The latest driver lists support for Mandrake 9.1. Be sure to download all of the instructions and read them thoroughly. For some reason, the many people find getting the Nvidia drivers working devilshly difficult. (I think that the reading the instructions step is the key.)

Good luck...
