GLX module Missing on display Fedora core 2

Hello. Im running Fedora core 2 and I just installed The Nvidia driver. I cannot open my linux game (Americas army). The splash screen loads then I get an error message:

Xlib: missing on display :0.0:.
Xlib: cannot match GLX module

I didnt touch XF86config because last time I did, I changed "Nv" to "Nvidia" (It says so in the readme) and it messed my whole linux up. But now its all set up again.

How would I get this program to launch?
Please help, it would be much appreciated.

You need to edit the config file as it says in the readme for the nvidia drivers to work. If you dont edit the config file the drivers arn't loaded. In addition to changing "nv" to "nvidia" you need to add load "glx" (it says that in the readme as well).

Actually, in Fedora Core 2 you should edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
