GLM option
Can anyone help me with GLM option on my computer. My computer XP with GeForce4 MX Graphics card. The driver has been updated few minutes ago from I am trying to set graphics driver to OpenGL. I got the message as follows:

Using the default visual:<24 bit TrueColor> Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". The OpenGL version can not run on this display, disabling extended mode Cannot find appropriate OpenGL visual

How can I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Re: GLM option
It would be helpful if you tell us, which operating system you are using. On Suse linux you first have to run the driver installation , the next step is to start sax2 and after that you have to type "switch2nvidia" before you run startx.

Re: GLM option
Thank you very much, both of you. I am using Dell pc, p-4 with XP window, Star-cd 3.15. As mentioned before, Geforce4 MX graphic card. I did go to starlauncher and ticked OpenGL. As my last post, those message comes out. Geforce4 MX was supposed to support OpenGL. I have no clue on what the mechanism lies behind.
