Thread: Someone ate my baby (libglx)!!!

    Default Someone ate my baby (libglx)!!!

    A while back I got me a shiny new Nvidia 8600GT to spiff up my KDE4 experience...and entered into a whole world of pain.

    Eventually pain trumped money and I just defected to camp ATI with a shiny new VisionTek HD4870.

    Trouble is that after going through numerous installs of the Catalyst 8.7 and xorg configs I still keep getting:

    "(EE) fglrx: Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) fglrx(0): Failed to load GLX module.

    (EE) fglrx(0): XMM failed to open CMMQS connection."

    2d performance similar to VESA and no 3d. Disabling composite changes nothing.

    A quick look at some of the places I've seen listed that *should* have libglx. didn't have it. One had Nvidia's libglx.so.173.14.12.

    Anyone have any ideas how to fix this / get back libglx.so?

    Is Nvidia *still* managing to screw up my computer even though I'm now on ATI?

    Any suggestions / conspiracy theories appreciated!

    Your distribution? How did you install the driver?

    You should try running the "./NVIDIA-Installer --uninstall" as root to delete everything nVidia related, then reinstall the AMD driver.

    I wouldn't be using proprietary software if it was that important. Your species doesn't seem too clever to me
