[johnny at localhost ~]$ glxgears
1054 frames in 5.0 seconds = 210.750 FPS
1064 frames in 5.0 seconds = 212.735 FPS
1077 frames in 5.0 seconds = 215.366 FPS
1061 frames in 5.0 seconds = 212.018 FPS

[johnny at localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | egrep -i 'glx|mesa' | sort

[johnny at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 6.8 (Final)


I have no issues .. no 3rd party repos on this server.

Can you provide more details .. did you upgrade all the 6.8 RPMS and not
just cheery pick updates .. do you have 3rd party repos installed?

Is this i386 or x86_64 CentOS-6.8?
