Whenever I try to run an openGL application all I get is a black window and I
get the error.
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b.
Some applications will freeze and the window can't be closed and the process
can't be killed but I can still move the window around. Oddly enough openGL
works for the gnome screen saver config dialog for a while but if you preview
in full screen, click outside of the dialog, or switch through several GL
screensavers it stops working and I just get blank screens for the GL
screensavers till I reboot.

Windows lock up with blank black screen. Get error listed above. Some windows

Sorry this is on a system with a Voodoo 5 5500 and the tdfx driver and I have
Updating summary, the visual message is harmless.
There is a new tdfx driver in updates-testing for FC6, 1.3.0-2, does this work
any better for you?

Much better however some apps still won't run (such as foobilliards) and
compiz and beryl still don't work but for the mosyt part all works pretty well
Another aaplication that does not run is google earth. Another user I know who
has had the same problems as I has experienced similar behavior. Here is the
output from the last time I ran Google Earth:
[root@wHack Desktop]# googleearth
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b

compiz and beryl are unlikely to ever work on the 3dfx cards, as they do not
support non-power-of-two textures.
New tdfx 2d driver is in fc6 updates now, closing this bug. Please see bug
#219202 for the compressed textures issue.
