I have an Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 AGP 4x and I'm installing the latest driver as I type this up.

Yes, glxgears works fine. I installed the latest driver for my NVidia card and now I get a different error:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

I have the same error message

"Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


History:

Exiting due to error
"

when tryihg to start America's Army. I've loaded Fedora 4 and I do yum updates regularly. My video card is a ATI mobility radeon 9600 (approved on the americasarmy website FAQ). GLXgears works at about 150 fps (even on a laptop). I checked ATI's website and they don't have downloadable drivers for their mobile chips. I'm still pretty stumped and I could really use the help. Thank you in advance and tell me if you need me to supply more info.

try 'setenforce 0'

How did you get your NVIDIA driver installed.
NVIDIA keeps asking me for kernal source, but, I can't find it.
