    Default xorg update/opengl update - ruined app

    I'm running SuSE 11.2 and I have the NVidia driver installed from the NVidia company and not the one from Novell.
    Recently I accepted an update for xorg.
    This is from the zypp log:

    Now my SweetHome3D app won't start! It says:
    "Fatal error in 3D rendering system.
    Update DirectX Opengl drivers of your computer graphics card."

    I haven't seen any updates for these from the updater applet yet.
    How can I roll back that one update? My SweetHome 3D app worked nicely before this update and I just want it to work again.

    I just tried to run Extreme Tux Racer but it too won't start. Then I tried it in a terminal and this is what I got:
    Code:
    *** etracer error: Couldn't initialize video: Could not create GL context (Resource temporarily unavailable)
    Then I tried SweetHome3D in a terminal and I got this:
    Code:
    ./SweetHome3D
    Java 3D WARNING : reported GLX version = 1.2
        GLX version 1.3 or higher is required
        The reported version number may be incorrect.  There is a known
        ATI driver bug in glXQueryVersion that incorrectly reports the GLX
        version as 1.2 when it really is 1.3, so Java 3D will attempt to
        run anyway.
    Canvas3D_createNewContext: couldn't create context
    Error in Java 3D : 3 Renderer: Error creating Canvas3D graphics context
    These two used to run just fine a few days ago (before the xorg update) with the same graphics card driver I now have:
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.31-pkg1

    Try reinstalling the driver.

    In case of the kernel or xorg-packages being upgraded, you will always have to reinstall the driver when using NVidias .run-file instead of the package from the repository.

    Thank you, I will try that out.

    Eureka! That worked! My favorite app is now running again!

    When re-installing the driver, there was this error message: "File '/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so' is not a symbolic link" So, what does that mean, and should I be worried?

    I suppose that was not an error message but merely a warning, wasn't it?

    I suppose so. I snooped around in that folder and saw that that particular file links to another one that is probably newer or something (libglx.so.195.36.31 Dated for today 9/12/10)

    I guess you should be okay with it.
