VLC in OpenGL mode works fine on my laptop, and I just found the reason for the glx[info|gears] issue on this computer (the desktop).
Somehow, it decided to use libGL.so.0 from /usr/X11R6/lib, a directory not changed since 2006-11-10, which suggests edgy was the last to use it (this computer has been upgraded in steps from hoary(!)). By renaming /usr/X11R6 to /usr/X11R.old, it started working again, and nothing else seems to be affected. Maybe some package should be updated to clean out that directory from old libraries?

Anyway, the VLC problem still persists on this computer, I just tried
