This is on SGI Altix. 16-processors box, using VMD 1.8.5 (I know that I need
to upgrade).

Receiving following message on start up.
Info) Multithreading available, 16 CPUs detected.
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display "localhost:10.0".
Info) OpenGL renderer: Quadro FX Go1400/PCI/SSE2
Info) Features: STENCIL MTX
Info) GLSL rendering mode is NOT available.
Info) Textures: 2-D (4096x4096), 3-D (512x512x512), Multitexture (4)
Found 1 plugins or data handlers in directory

Is the lack of GLSL rendering a XFree86 problem or an NVIDIA driver problem?

I attach the glxinfo output.
