Default FC5 + OpenGL/GLX on nVIDIA 5200


On a nearly up-to-date FC5 system, we do not have any "GLX" OpenGL
extensions.

The system is up-to-date except for using kernel 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 instead
of the newer 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5.

The recommended nVIDIA driver installation,
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run, fails saying 'no match for kernel
found'.

We are using kernel 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.

We tried with the newer 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 kernel, but still no "GLX"
extensions.

The nVIDIA driver worked fine under FC4.

Where do we find "GLX" for FC5?

Any suggestions?

All Fixed!

I saw the other news group posts with respect to nVIDIA FC5 install issues.

The instructions at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=68681
were absolutely correct.

Essentially package xorg-x11-server-sdk was required to build the driver
as part of the nVIDIA install procedure.

We did not have to hassle with SELinux permissions, since we do not have
SELinux enabled.

So after running "yum install xorg-x11-server-sdk", the nVIDIA driver
installed perfectly.
