Re: [R] error: GLX extension missing on server

Thanks Brian,

I have

Load "glx"

in the Module section of xorg.conf -

However, based on my latest probing the graphics card is not in the opensuse xgl database, and the 3D acceleration is not enabled. So I will have to wait till a new package comes available with the driver for the intel GMA (q965 chipset) on opensuse 10.2 X86_64

Cheers
Herry

This is an X11 server issue, not a library one. In my xorg.conf I have

Section "Module"
         Load  "fbdevhw"
         Load  "record"
         Load  "freetype"
         Load  "type1"
         Load  "vnc"
         Load  "glx"
         Load  "dbe"
         Load  "extmod"

EndSection

and you may need something similar. GLX is an X11 extension, but I would have expected it to be there in a vanilla configuration, so please talk t your sysadmins.
