the glx reference means it something to do w/ xfree86, probably the opengl. are you sure opengl works on your system? did you run the glxgears and glxinfo?

i just tried glxgears and glxinfo and got the same errors im 100% sure my graphics card supports opengl because its a MSI Geforce4Ti4600 128mb ddr, any suggestions on howto get it to work.

and the Load "glx" in your xf86config file is there.

try typing "glxinfo" (no quotes) in the console and look for the words "direct rendering" there should be a colon after those words, and after the colon, there should be a "yes" or "enabled". can you check this? if it says "no or "disabled" then opengl hardware acceleration is not working right.

oh you have an nvidia? then getting everything to work should be easy. just go to
http://nvidia.com
and download the drivers for your video card. youre a lucky guy. ATI owners (like me )dont have it that easy .
