Re: [vox-tech] GL apps not running, NVIDIA X11 module



Ah ha!  Got it.  Since you mentioned reading the document, I read through
it from beginning to the end and tried different options and things.  It
turns out:

   - I had stale libGL.so pointing to a non-existing libGL.so.1.2blahblah
     Fix.  (But shouldn't the installer have done this for me?)

   - Quake2 requires options to run properly.

Everything now works as it should, including SDLgears and Quake2.  Great!!
Thank you SOOOOOO much!!  I think reading through the doc got me to fix
the stability problem too (but we'll see if it worked in a few days.)

-Mark
