I am at witts end with 6+ hours trying to compile
Mesa and NVdriver compile but I am not sure they play nicely together.
Mesa demos play and /proc/nv/card0 shows NVdriver with 4XAGP enabled! I
am worried about nVidia libs conflicting with Mesa? Also with proper
directories for includes/libs.
TuxRacer has me stumped. The configure script errors out by saying that
glx.h is old and points me to mesa3d.sourceforge.net. Been there, done
I issued, find / -name glx.h -print to be sure glx.h is the latest
header. It is, even says Mesa 3.5 Brian Paul etc... I don't get this!
Seems that the configure script is looking to see if glx.h defines
I looked at the code and at the very end of the file there is some
mention. This adds to my confusion.
Basically I need setup/install help getting OpenGL type apps working.
TuxRacer was my first to try and maybe my last.

They aren't meant to!
It's an either/or situation.
Either use Mesa/DRI and (if you have an nVidia card) the UTAH-GLX renderer
OR download the nVidia OpenGL-for-Linux drivers and use those.
If you have a GeForce card, I *STRONGLY* recommend the nVidia driver...
although there is no source code for it and that upsets some purists.
However, if you use the nVidia drivers, you **MUST** completely uninstall
Mesa first...and vice-versa. If you don't *completely* get rid of all
trace of Mesa, the nVidia drivers become rather flakey and some applications
will run without hardware accelleration. Probably the reverse is the case -
I don't know.
I have GeForce cards in all my PC's and I use the nVidia drivers everywhere.
