Don't forget to reboot your Linux machines every few months (Software upgrades from weeks ago bite me...)
Last update on .
Managed to get the X server into a weird state that just refused to do anything, so I rebooted my workstation. And it could neither find the hardware clock nor start the X server. Apparently I have a new x-org (likely from that security problem a while ago) and the Nvidia driver didn't seem to want to run until it was rebuilt. Still haven't figured out why the hwclock utility can't access /dev/rtp , looks like some sort of conflict with the xorg server (it's got the file open with "m" access).
Which is to say; I got somewhat distracted from the PyOpenGL hacking...

It seems most times you Instally a new X server, or linux kernel you need to rebuild the nvidia driver.<br />
I also find things more Crashy with nvidia when messing with opengl stuff.<br />
For a whole bunch of Security flaws, look no further than opengl.
