Seems like I have no Direct rendering here
$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
Getting this error when installing nvidia:
ERROR: The runtime configuration check failed for the library
'libGL.so.1.0.8178' (expected: '/usr/lib/libGL.so.1', found:
'/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1'). The most likely reason for this is that
conflicting OpenGL libraries are installed in a location not inspected
by `nvidia-installer`. Please be sure you have uninstalled any
third-party OpenGL and/or third-party graphics driver packages.
-> Runtime sanity check failed.
How can I fix this?
Try this thread.
you error message says /usr/X11R6
well you haven't removed this path from your filesystem,
/usr/X11R6 shouldn't have any file in it and should be removed.
Thanks a lot lillwad. Removed the files, reinstalled nvidia, and it all works
