Xlib problem


Hello there:
I have a slight problem, I've looked everywhere and I can't seem to find an answer.
When I try to run kweatherservice I get the following error:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
It shows nothing, but when I do ps -A it says it is running
Anyone know??
Thanks

This means that you don't need GLX (OpenGL extensions) to run kweatherservice. To suppress these messages, you can edit the XF86Config file (usually in /etc/X11) and add the following to your "Module" section: Load "glx". restart X.

kweatherservice is a daemon, it runs in the background (hence nothing is supposed to show up). It runs automatically if you use the KWeather applet on your panel.
