Hey Wow,

Thanks for the tip. Got the files fine.

I'm feeling rather like noob, so while I'm in the mood may I ask another question? I'm not sure what's wrong but I can't seem to get glxgears working. I get the message:
Code:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0"
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual


What am I doing wrong?

please attach your files:
/var/log/Xorg.0.log
/etc/X11/xorg.conf

add them to a .tar.gz with xarchive, then you can attach them here.
Mark

It looks like, that you first installed the mesa.sfs, and then the nvidia.sfs.
I suggest to install the mesa.sfs again, so that /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so gets replaced with the correct version.

Hi Mark,

Mesa-7.2-i686.sfs doesn't seem to contain the folder /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg.

ah yes, sorry, that file is in pup_411.sfs, in the original iso.
You can mount it like the other files.

e.g. like:
mkdir /root/mount
cd /wherever-pup_411.sfs-is-located
mount -o loop pup_411.sfs /root/mount

Ok, I've copied libglx.so from the original pup_411.sfs to /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/. As it was a symlink I transferred the target libglx.so.177.82 as well. Is that right?

best will be to delete libglx.so and libglx.so.177.82, then copy the correct one.
But your solution should also work Smile

Libglx.so and libglx.so.177.82 were both replaced (I confirmed them both) so, hopefully it had the same effects as being deleted, then I restarted. What's the next step?

after restarting X try again glxgears or glxinfo.
If still no success, I need again /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

After restarting X glxgears is still displaying the same error.

Looking at Xorg.0.log I noticed it's identified my chipset as GM45 but in Windows it's identified as GL40. Could that be part of the problem? GM45 does use the same graphics processor as GL40. My laptop is a Toshiba L300/R00.

your log still says:

(II) Loading /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"

(II) Loading extension GLX


What size has your libglx.so?
It should be less than 500 kb, mine is 311 kb.
Maybe it is best not only to restart X, but to reboot.
