I wasn't familiar with those commands, I used locate. I ran them now. The
mesa search returned nada. the first one returned the set in /usr/lib, the
set in the source directory I installed from (/usr/src/NVIDIA_GLX-0.9-6),
and what might be unrelated files in /usr/X11R6/lib (libGL.a, libGL.la,
libGLU.a, libGLU.la, libGLU.so.1.2.030200, libGLU.so, and libGLU.so.1).

Thank you., I updated.

I have kernel 2.4.2 and Xfree 4.0.2.

good call. i perused nvidia's web site, and I just ended up deleting the
one not it /usr/lib.

I'll test it.
