I don't think that's the case. I checked and the libglx.so I have in
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions is a symbolic link to the
libglx.soinstalled by the nvidia-glx package (I use Ubuntu
6.06). How did you come to the conclusion about glxgears anyways, whenever I
ran mine it seemed to be all right?
Also, I noticed sometimes my "watch TV" *does* work, so it's not black all
the time. I really am very confused why.
