    glxinfo gives me command not found
    the problem is i have no 3d acceleration, my video card was working ok, but i had other issues with mandriva and decided a fresh start would be best so i wiped the disk started again and my other issues are now fixed i just have a new problem now.

    i don't get nvidia splash screen on startup like i used to, i have tried to reinstall it but it just gives me a message saying its already installed
    just a bit more info, i have nvidia settings in my menu list when i go to the section on glx opengl and click on it, i get a black screen and booted back to the login screen and have to relogin again.

    You may have to direct xorg to your opengl files.
    Let me know if I can help.
