yes you need to install 32 bit mesa then rebuild your nvidia driver with 32 bit compatibility. or you will never get your glx to work in 32 bit.
if you are using the generic driver nouveau for your graphics then remember you need 32 bit mesa also. and all the 32 bit compatibility libraries.
I am sure Fedora has some kind of a "Yum" way of doing it.

ok in Slackware Alien bob a volunteer developer for Slackware has documented this well.
please read here. http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/pipe...inux-browsers/
then ask your self what pipelight runs on. and it's dependencies. why we use it to run silverlight to watch net flicks.

(using GL renderer "GeForce GTX 660 Ti/PCIe/SSE2", version "1.4 (2.1.2 NVIDIA 331.79)").
to fix this please read my previous answer.
