Nvidia driver.. Installation problems

Hi All,

I recently downloaded the "" for my Linux box ( RH9 ) I installed the driver and rebooted X. All seemed fine, or at least I still had X which was a plus, ( also checked the X86 log, and no errors there ?? ) only problem is I cannot run GL games of any sort ( Bzflag and so on...). I read the readme and I altered the X86 file, replacing "nv" with nvidia and so on. It all seems fine apart, from it doesn't work Am I missing something, can anybody help

Many thanks in advance...

Did you remove the # from the front of the line
# Load "glx"
in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config so it reads
Load "glx"
