Nouveau GLX problems

Well switching from nVidia propietry drivers to the open source Nouveau drivers for nVidia GPU’s I found I had no 3D acceleration, and when running glxinfo etc I was getting

Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

And in Xorg.log.0 output file I was seeing

Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)

Turns out after stuffing around trying to find a solution, I did a search to find the package that held libglx.so and that was in the xserver-xorg-core. Well I reinstalled xserver-xorg-core and it fixed the problem and I now have 3D goodness :-)

# apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core
