I have a Dell 340 with the NVIDIA 4900 and have tried to follow all the comments here as well as NVIDIAs for this upgrade, but have come up lacking.
I got no errors with the rpms and selected the right ones by using the NVchooser, but when I recompile and try to run my graphics program I get:
"GLUT: fatal error in PROGRAM NAME) visual with necessary capabilities not found.
When I run glxinfo I get "couldn't find RGBGLX visual".
I am relatively novice to linux moving this software from a flight simulator and an SGI machine to this Dell, but it sounds like a very basic problem I may be missing.
Any ideas? I hate to have to reinstall RedHat 8.0 again- I had to do this once before to get my flat panel drivers to work and do not look forward to it.
BTW, when I installed it gave me a warning that it was installing over Mesa- only warning I saw.
I have posted this below- but think it will be buried. Help sorely needed.
