Yes I did have the nvidia driver when it was a RH9 system. I presumed
the nvidia driver was removed with the removal of the 2.4.* RH9 kernel.
The libglx.so appears to be a remnant of the RH9 that was left there
when the FC4 upgrade decided that my TNT would not support GLX.
That is why I was asking how to get the real xorg libglx.so
