Xlib errors, X Windows Problems??? Please help...


Downloaded guarddog and I can't fully configure how I want to.

How come I can open guarddog as normal user but not as root????

I open from Desktop(not command line), asks me for root password, I give, then the window comes up and goes away..
From Command Line I get these Errors:

[root@localhost bin]# guarddog
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
kbuildsycoca running...
Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy
[root@localhost bin]#

Any ideas??

Mesa libs is installed but if I uninstall Mesa, I'll be forced to uninstall a multitude of other important applications, so I left it alone. Tried using it again after refomatting my harddrive, but guarddog still wont open as root, which is strange because it will open as regular user.

Also , if I'm not mistaken, Mesa is associated with GLU not GLX, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I have a fear that I won't be able to open any applications I install because of this... someone please help me Anywayz, here is the .xsession error file:

Don't know if this is the same fix, but I have gotten many an error as user su-ing to root and seeing the Xlib error trying to open an application (specifically synaptic). After searching here, I found a fix that I don't entirely understand. I won't try and expain as I will just garble it. My fix was, in command line,

xhost +localhost

then su-ing to root and opening the application. This is apparantly a bit of a security risk as it will allow anybody to access these x files, so I have read that after finishing whatever you are doing, type xhost -localhost. Try that to see if it helps.

nice try asb, but no love...Get the same commandline error, window pops up, then closes instantly, why am i not able to run as root but as a regular user..this is so frustrating... Everywhere I've searched on googler about this error comes up for people who have had issues with their video cards, but this can't be my case , because when I originally installed Mandrake this was not happening...

Could this possibly have anything to do with CD-2 or CD-3 or the Mandrake installation, because I've never used them...

What are CD-2 and 3 for anyway???
