Changed Video Drivers, OpenGL broken

Postby Vontux on Thu Sep 19, 2013 5:49 pm

As I'm relatively new to Debian Edition, I have been tinkering with settings and drivers. In my tinkering I have somehow screwed up OpenGL support on my system, nothing that requires it will run. When I run "glxinfo" I get the following output:
Code: Select all
name of display: :0
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".

Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

When I first installed the system it loaded up automatically the "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" driver. To try and improve performance I switched to the recommended driver in ddm, unfortunately that screwed up the resolution settings and I could not use any resolution other than 640 x 480, so I eventually switched back to the "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" driver via ddm and things seemed to return to normal. Unfortunately I've only recently noticed that nothing that needs to use open gl can run. I've also tried the "xserver-xorg-video-fbdev" and "xserver-xorg-video-vesa" drivers to try and fix an issue I was having with mplayer before finally again settling on "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau". If anyone has an idea of what I broke, or how I could begin to fix it I'd be very appreciative.
