Re: XFree 4.0.1 and Quake

Yup.  Did all of that.  Do you think that editing the Makefile code so that
it would not load moduleversions.h had anything to do with this?  The error
reported from Quake is this:

XError of failed Request: GLXBadRenderRequest
Major opcode of failed request: 142 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 1 (X_GLXRender)
Serial number of failed request: 4510
Current serial number in output stream: 4514
