    video problems

    why is it when i play movies the screen gets glitchy (choppy or staticy video)?
    or that stepmania has trouble initilizing my video card?

    It could be that you're simply running mesa for opengl rather than any actual drivers for your video card. That is probably the most common problem. I used to play a game and before I found the ATI Drivers, I was getting very crappy FPS, but as soon as I kicked up the video drivers (and of course edited the x server config file to change the video driver) it became nice and beautiful
