Got it. The /usr/X11R6/lib/ligGL.so.1 file should have been removed as
part of the NVidia driver installation. We just confirmed that with the
Red Hat 9 and the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run driver distribution.
You had version 53.28, so maybe it was a bug in that driver? We had
previous installed NVidia version 43.63 using the same mechanism, so it's
probably not a problem with the driver, but something went wrong during
the installation. You should uninstall and install that driver again (or
just upgrade to the 53.36).
