Glxgears doesn't work with Etch


Ever since I upgraded to Etch, glxgears has refused to work properly. It does open and the gears turn very slowly. There is no fps logging, no coments of any kind. The strange thing is that direct rendering works and so does my video 3d. The problem is with glxgears itself. (Try Googling that.)

Now, this is not the Linux world's biggest problem, but I am curious. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks.

If you're using nVidia,
the glx .dep packages(for the new modular X.org7) are currently not available.
You could still use the nVidia's installer:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
...and install it like this:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-*.run --x-module-path=/usr/lib/xorg/modules

Hey, thanks. That works. Funny, it never used to need the -printfps.

You wouldn't believe how long I searched for that, they changed it for some stupid reason if I remember it properly you can also use the wonderful switch -iacknowledgethatthisisnotabenchmark what a bunch of foolishness.
