Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":10.0".

Hi everyone,

I am trying to access a remote server from my machine and use a particular graphical application. I am able to run all the other X applications on that server except the one that I need. I get the error message:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":10.0".

I did some searching on LQ and found that people who had this error message have NVIDIA video-card. I don't.

My xorg.conf file has uncommented
Load "glx"
line, and this is the output I have when running slocate glx

Believe it or not, i've just had the same prob. When i went into the subdirectory, all if found were files which ended with .so So, i changed the

xorg.conf file to .../

and it stopped complaining. Don't have the foggiest if this really solved the problem or just shut the machine up. I still have the problem that my X server wont's start and gives me a can't load "Default font fixed." message. So, i've posted this problem in another thread and am waiting on some brave soul to venture forth.
Hope this helps! Have a great morning!
