Hi, I am trying to install a software called Geant4 on my debian
"Etch" installation of x86_64 architecture (intel EMT64). I
figured out that OpenGL libraries installation is incomplete on
my system. I tried posting the error message in Geant4 website
where I got the suggestion to check OpenGL libraries installtion.
I have cross checked with other installation on RedHat linux and
found that several libraries in /usr/X11R6/lib directory are
missing in my debian installation. These libraries as I suppose
are related to X windows and OpenGL libraries. I checked in
package manager and serched web and installed all the possible
software pkgs that are similar to these libraries but I couldn't
get it work. My installation doesn't open any OpenGL window.
Could anyone please specify where can I download these drivers
and which libraries make my installation complete. Note: I have
installed NVidia drivers on my system. Will there be any
conflicts b/w NVidia drivers and OpenGL libraies? Thanks

Is xserver-xorg-core installed?

Note that if you directly install the upstream nvidia driver, it
conflicts with the xserver-xorg-core version of
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so, and every time that
xserver-xorg-core is updated you'll have to re-symlink
libglx.so.1.0.NNNN to libglx.so.  No big deal, but just something to

Good point. I wondered why dpkg-repack always complained with xserver-xorg-core and knew it had to do with the nvidia driver but this is the reason. Thanks.
