I just installed Linux and am trying to install DRI drivers/Wine... I got to a point where it said check and see if some things are visiible when u type glxinfo, but all i get when i type glxinfo is:

name of display: :0.0

visual x bf lv rg d st colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer ms cav
id dep cl sp sz l ci b ro r g b a bf th cl r g b a ns b eat
0x21 16 tc 0 0 0 c . . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None
0x22 16 dc 0 0 0 c . . 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 None

Does anyone know how to setup glx from a fresh Linux install - Newbiew details please hehe Thanks!
Also When I Install Mplayer with built-in Libavcodec's and FFMpeg already install, and I ./configure mplayer make, and make install mplayer and type mplayer in the command terminal, NOTHING HAPPENS DAMNIT, what am I doing wrong, please help me with these problems...
Does glxgears work (type glxgears at the terminal prompt)? If it does, GLX works. I don't know how glxinfo works, sorry.

For mplayer configure, maybe I'm not getting what you're saying. Are you typing:

make install

as root for all three (or at least the last one)?

And not getting any errors at all? The easiest way to check this is to do this
./configure &> configure_output
then do:
grep "***" configure_output
(The backslashes are necessary). Any lines that are output will contain three stars. These lines are errors - the making is failing because of them.

Similar for the rest:
make &> makelog
grep "***" makelog
make install &> makeinstalllog
grep "***" makeinstalllog

Another thing you might want to do is change configure to be:
./configure --prefix=/usr
then the files won't be installed in /usr/local, but instead in /usr. This would be, for logging, as
./configure --prefix=/usr &> configure_output
grep "***" configure_output

If all this works and you still cant find anything try:
locate mplayer

That'll output the locations of any files that have mplayer in their filename.
