Redhat 9 and NVIDIA driver


I recently installed redhat 9 on 2 of my systems and am having problems getting the NVIDIA driver working correctly. I downloaded the latest driver from their site, installed it and now I get about 0.5 fps in glxgears.

What I cant figure out is I have installed this driver many times before with no problems, is their an issue with the new NVIDIA driver?

Question glxgears

I too have RH9 , using nvidia driver...
I believe the previous post likely is the answer.
I found the README and it makes those direct suggestions.

I'm running glxgears at +1800 FPS
I guess that's good.

I have done this on both machines, what I cant figure out is I have installed this driver many times before and had no problems, the only difference I can find is NVIDIA seems to have a new driver 5xxx, instead of the 4xxx I had used in the past. It seems I have read somewhere that my openGL libraries might not be linked correctly and it is trying to use the old libraries??...

That must be it. I still had a copy of 4xxx and installed that and all is well.
