Re: [vox-tech] video garbage

It looks like you've installed the binary only drivers from Nvidia's web
site.  Is that correct?  If so, then you shouldn't be loading dri or glcore in your
xf86config.  If that's not the problem, try:
	Driver "nv" #xfree86 nvidia driver
in place of 
	Driver "nvidia" #nvidia nvidia driver

Remember that Nvidia's driver doesn't play with OpenGL libs
other than their own, so if your gl libs got upgraded when you weren't
