Check to make sure you are not pulling in the Mesa libGL. NVIDIA_GLX should

(do an ldd to see where your opengl program is linking in the libraries from
and/or do an ldconfig -p to find any libGL libraries). /usr/lib is where
nvidia installes their GL libraries.

I've just got latest Mesa from sourceforge, and compiled/installed it.
I have NVidia Riva TNT 2 with 32M of memory, gaining 40 fps in Q3 on
Windoze. I've just installed XFree86-4.0.3 , and set up drivers for my
video card -- that's my first attepmt to get acceleration woring on
Linux. However, it works fairly bad. For example, demos/tunnel runs
on about 2-4 fps... It's quite sad.
Could anyone help me what I'm doing wrong, or what software I'd
better update ??
P.s.: I have 196M RAM and Celeron 300 overclocked to 375.
Make sure you install the nvidia drivers for linux/Xfree86. Details and
tarballs/rpms on their website.
Yes, I've installed it, and I have nice NVidia logo when X is starting,
but I don't have nice perfomance..
BTW: It didn't changed a bit when I've tried to use XFree86 drivers. It
stays just same... :-((.
The makefile for NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-1251 removes occurences in /usr/lib but
not in /usr/local or possibly other areas.
Make sure all the entries are correct in your XF86Config file as per the
nvidia install file:
Device section and replace the line:
In the Module section, make sure you have:
You should also remove the following lines:
Interesting, my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 has:
Load "dbe" # Double-buffering
Load "GLcore" # OpenGL support
Load "dri" # Direct rendering infrastructure
Load "glx" # OpenGL X protocol interface
Load "extmod" # Misc. required extensions
Load "v4l" # Video4Linux
and my tnt2 works fine.
I used the tar files, not rpms. Removed my Mesa GL library and symlinks
from /usr/local/lib. Updated the XF86Config files (just changed nv to nvidia).
Ran make install under NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-1251 and ran make install under
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-1251. I can't think of anything else I needed to do. Hope
that all helps.
