Can't set video mode?

Attempting to run Armericas Army

Error: Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual

Card : Nvidia FX 5200

(II) Loading sub module "GLcore"
(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_clip.o": object file contains no symbols
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_norm.o": object file contains no symbols
(II) Skipping "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_xform.o": object file contains no symbols
(II) Module GLcore: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(II) Reloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a

Section "Module"
Load "type1"
Load "dbe"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx"
Load "v4l"
Load "extmod"
Load "GLcore"

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5200 (0x0322)"
BusID "0:13:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
VendorName "NVidia"

I have found "object file contains no symbols" -- Is this my problem?
And how can I fix this?
