looks like it's adding a / in there, which would explain why it can't
find the file.

try starting from the command line, within the quake2 dir, like this:

./quake2 +set vid_ref glx

making sure that the the file is actually called "ref_glx.so". I had
exactly the same problems, and it turned out the my config file was

set vid_ref "gl"

I also had better luck running the game from
/usr/local/share/games/quake2, so that it automatically creates and uses
a config dir in your ~/ called, of course, .quake2.
