What of you try with the Nvidia closed-source drivers?
Ok based on your advice, I installed the closed source drivers (the .run
file from nvidia) and basically the x server didn't run at all. In the X
server's log, there was a weird signal 11 error that I've never seen
before in my life.
Something must have gone wrong during installation. Maybe you missed
part of the installation process. As far as I can remember there's more
than simply running the *.run file.
But then, I installed back the nvidia packages, and it WORKED!
Then it probably has something to do with the drivers.
But the thing is, old executables don't work. If I recompile them now,
How don't they work?
they work. Isn't it interesting?? Probably a library file was corrupt or
It's hard to tell. Anyway, my experience is that you have to use the
closed-source Nvidia drivers and libraries for serious OpenGL use.
