This is because the Nvidia ugly hack to delete libGL only gets
part of it. The i686 TLS libGL is left, and if your system
autodetects as being i686 compatible and compatible with TLS,
that library will override anything installed in the general
location (where Nvidia puts theirs). As such, you end up using
Mesa software libGL, and it tells you no DRI driver is available,
which is correct.
Newbie (and perhaps stupid) question: is there a way to remove
nVidia GL, so that one can keep the Mesa ones? ... Or am I obliged to
continually remove the latter? As it stands, there two steps necessary
whenever I get rawhide updates:
1) re-run the nVidia installer whenever the kernel is updated
2) remove using --nodeps whenever XFree is updated (since I can't
update without including the Mesa-libGL package...
... or am I asking the impossible / unreasonable?
