Are you running the command as the same user that is running your Xorg (GUI)?

That means that either the Video driver is not installed, or OpenGL support was not installed, or is not working.

Can you post your xorg.conf please.
This should be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Also, please post your Linux version.

It's not a compile time issue.  The X server you are using doesn't have the GLX extension.  You need to install a driver specific for your video card.  What is your linux distribution and what kind of video card do you have?

One of these days I'm going to learn to read previous posts before I try to answer a question.

Run lspci and show us the result so we can see your video card info.
