Re: Quake 3 ran, I upgraded. . . Well, It doesn't run any more

    Well, like I said, there aren't any other GL stuffs ( other than the
NVidia stuffs that is) on my box.  I was running Quake 3 fine and dandy (and
everything else too) with Woody and the NVidia stuffs before.  Then, since
for some reason I had to remake the NVidia driver everytime I booted up, I
decided to upgrade to the most recent version of Woody.  Ouch. . . it kind
of broke my box.  I've fixed a lot of the stuff, but there are still some
things that aren't quite working yet.  For example, Quake 3.  Also, right
now only root can use the Emu10k1 (sound) driver.  Can't play any sounds
with any other user.
    For further information, I cannot start X with the NVdriver driver.  I
checked the log and the only error I could find was that it could not load
GLcore.  I did install (and re-installed) the drivers and X still won't
    Any help with any of the above problems would be appreciated.
