Since Friday I am having a strange problem with my beloved Ubuntu 8.04. At about lunch time there was a number of updates available (new nvidia-driver and kernel 2.6.24-22). Anyway after this update I noticed that every time I tried to start a program that I use for work I would get this error message:
I have tried to load into an old kernel, downgrade the nvidia-glx-new, reinstall freeglut3 and the program I want to use and all of its dependencies. No luck...
freeglut (/path/to/program): OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display ':0.0'
When I run glxgears, I get

Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
