glxinfo gives wrong Nvidia driver version

Postby swingsoneto on Tue Jan 15, 2013 1:19 pm

Hi there, this is my first post here. First time I've needed to! The forum is usually really helpful enough that I've never actually had to sign up before :)

Anyway, I'm actually having a problem with Wine and OpenGL but it seems all my woes somehow relate to Nvidia drivers. I've uninstalled proprietary Nvidia drivers (304.60) with
Code: Select all
nvidia-installer --uninstall
and then installed the Ubuntu Nvidia drivers via Synaptic. I've tried installing 295, 304.48, and NOW 310.14 to see if Wine would cooperate better with newer drivers. I've also then reinstalled basically ALL of the libgl and related libs several times.

But glxinfo prints this:
Code: Select all
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
OpenGL version string: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 304.48

But the current version installed is 310.14. Why does it think I'm still at 304.48? I'm getting OpenGL errors in Wine because of this mismatch. What do I do?
