From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
I installed Red Hat 7.3.  From the default install with all the packages, GLX 
does will not load. Anything utilizing this proccess does not load either. I.E 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat 7.3
2.Try to run TuxRacer

Actual Results:  I recieve a GLX error. It also occurs when attempting to run 

Expected Results:  The game should run.

Additional info:

I've attempted to install GLX drivers from Nvidias web site but they will not 
install properly.

After I edit the XF86Config-4 to load GLX, X server will not even load.

I consider this a pretty big flaw considering I cannot run default packages 
that come with the Linux installation such as TuxRacer. 

After hours upon hours of searching, I am still unable to figure out why GLX 
will not load.  Any info would be nice (nelis_orb@yahoo.com)

I've had a similar problem. When using exceed to connect I get a glx error. 
Also, it seems to affect the glut libs. When we try to run our 
own programs that utilize glut (glutCreateWindow()) we get these errors. 
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server 
Xlib: No protocol specified 
The errors seem to occur at the time of the function call.

Closing bugs for old packages that have no maintainer.
