    Problem with games


    HI:

    I have been recently trying out some games on my RedHat distribution, but find them to be unacceptably slow, seriously lagging my computer. The two main culprits are tuxracer and chromium. Do I have to set up my video card or something to have them work properly?

    Thanks,

    Do you have an nVidia card?

    In that case you'll need to install nVidia's Linux drivers, since the drivers that come with Linux distributions for nVidia cards doesn't use the accelleration functions (due to legal issues). They have a very good readme along with the drivers, so installation should go easy.

    Re: NVidia

    Hi:

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I believe I screwed up somewhere along the insallation process . The Nvidia guide directed that I restart the X Window system, which I tried to do with a ctrl-alt-backspace. Now, I keep on getting a weird error: Id "x" respawning too fast....Wait 5 minutes. Every five minutes, it shows this same message. Do you know what happened and how I can fix it? Thanks

    You probably screwed up your XF86Config. Log in as root at a text terminal, run "less -S /var/log/XFree86.0.log" and check there for errors.
