I have found that If i can use glxgears , and the frame rates indicate that the 3d acceleration is going on than all the proper libraries are in place,,,

glxinfo will tell you if opengl is working... Tells you all the gl functions available.

But what i mean is:
I'm writing a bash script that needs to check if opengl is installed.
So how can i do that?
btw, from glxgears:
16134 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3226.800 FPS
:P

I thought a script that ran glxinfo and grep'ed the result might do that, by looking for key statements in the glxinfo output like Direct Rendering: yes and various glx etentions, etc...
