    NVIDIA driver installation GLX issues


    Hi,

    I'm a newbie to the world of linux and want to use it in order to run Shake, apple's digital compositing package on my PC at home.

    I'm using Fedora Core 5.

    I've got everything almost up and running but the driver for the graphics card is proving to be a problem, (slightly irritating since I was promised a smooth ride if I chose Nvidia over ATI!)

    Anyway, after much trawling I have installed the drivers using the

    http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html

    But now my copy of Shake won't run. I get the following error in the terminal:Xlib:

    extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    internal error: no suitable visual

    I've since been trying to install the driver that came with my GeForce 7600GT but I run into difficulty when the installer cannot locate the Kernel Source material.

    If anyone has seen either of these problems before or has any bright ideas I would be most gratefull to hear them.

    Cheers,

    oli

    Ps. If more info is required from me let me know.

    This is the procedure that worked for me.

    Code:
    yum install kernel-devel
    should get your kernel source so you can build the module.
