[slackware]GLX problems


Hello
I have some problems with my GLX.When i wan't to start my unreal tournament 2004 demo it says:
Quote:
XLib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"
XLib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"

Couldn't set videomode: Couldn't find mathing GLX Visual.
It doesn't only say that when i run utdemo but also gimp and when i start 'startx'.

I already comment something about GLX in my XF86Config.

But got it has to do something with my videocard?Because when i shutdown i saw something like "can't find nvidia driver" or something like that.
I have installed my nvidia driver without problems.But i can't set my video card to geforce fx(in some sort of configuration program), only till geforce 3 and some others.

So does anyone know a good sollution to solve my problem?
Thank you verry much Hylke

read the Nvidia documentation again, make sure everything is setup correctly in /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4)
