Re: Updating a SO library from source that was originally installed by a package manager

You cannot update system libraries. Especially not those that are already present in a minimal install. Period. Shared libraries have an SONAME compiled into the library, something like libfoo.so.5. The SONAME reflects the available functionality and the ABI, not the software version. Installing thi...

Re: Intel Comet Lake MCE error

This isn't an mce error, it's just a warning spit out during the setup of the mce driver: your firmware (bios) is buggy. Because the kernel detected this and worked around it, no further action is required.

Besides: 7.7 is dead by now and totaly unsupported.

Re: kernel-4.18.0-193.6.3.el8_2.x86_64 update broke kmod-nvidia driver functioning

@mprater: You should discuss this with the elrepo people. They have their own bugtracker and mailing list. The nvidia driver packages are not provided by CentOS.

@jlehtone: You are using the current driver which does not want to replace the system's libglx.so.

Re: kernel-4.18.0-193.6.3.el8_2.x86_64 update broke kmod-nvidia driver functioning

There should be /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so from xorg-x11-server-Xorg and /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia/libglx.so from nvidia-x11-drv-390xx. If the proprietary driver is configured, the X server should be made to load the latter. This should be done by the elrepo package...

Direct rendering does not imply hardware acceleration.

I guess you need to go through the logs to see where things go wrong. First thing to check is probably whether the nvidia kernel module was successfully loaded or not.

What is the output of glxinfo? It should contain the line "OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation".

Re: video card for 4k monitor supported by centos X11?

Currently I have an nvidia card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, 4gb) from a few years ago, and the nvidia driver. I have had nothing but trouble with it -- sometimes crashing in the middle of work (nothing video-intensive. just typing in xterms), sometimes when the machine is doing nothing overnight. Some...

Re: chromium / google-chrome crash on ssh/X11 sessions

My problem of understanding the issue: start locale works fine, but when I try to start it -- for testing: "ssh -X localhost" it crashes. In this case, hardware is the same. The difference is that in the first case you get a direct OpenGL context and the second case you get an indirect OpenGL conte...
