Yep... I've got "nvidia" driver installed.
sm01@stt008:~$ dpkg -S libGLcore.so.1
Let me check:
sm01@stt008:~$ dpkg -l | grep nvidia
ii nvidia-glx 173.14.09-5 NVIDIA binary Xorg driver
ii nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-2-amd64 173.14.09+3+lenny1 NVIDIA binary kernel module for Linux 2.6.26
ii nvidia-kernel-common 20080825+1 NVIDIA binary kernel module common files
But I have installed those just because my VGA card is nvidia-based.
As is my card. I have tended to go for the proprietary drivers from
nVidia directly, & I wonder if somewhere along the line I pulled down
the Debian libraries as part of an update? This is certainly consistent
with what I have found out from further research.
Anyway, the fix was to rerun the nvidia installer script after purging
anything to do with nVidia via #aptitude purge ~i~nnvidia
This seems to have done the job & the error was mine: I mixed
installation methods somehow without realising it. Mea culpa :-(
Thanks for your assistance though.
