    Looks like your system isn't setup for OpenGL 3D acceleration.

    What's your video card and have you installed the drivers?

    ET == best multiplayer game ever.

    nv are generic xfree drivers, they don't provide the 3d accel you need.

    Download the nvidia drivers from their site. The 4496 ones work with RH9, dunno about the latest 5536 ones though.

    To install open a terminal, type su and enter password to go to root and then type init 3 to kill X and end up with a command line. Then type sh nvidia.........installer...name.sh to run the installer. Then change nv to nvidia in /etc/X11/XF86Config (or could be XF86Config-4). Restart and you should see the splash screen.

    Postback if you need more help.

    Don't forget to read the README file, it contains info that's very important about teh XFree86 config, you need to comment out two lines (iirc 'Load DRI' and 'Load GLcore') and add one ("Load glx"), and modify one ('driver "nv"' -> 'driver "nvidia"', iirc). Else you'd probably have problems still, I see ther DRI related error in the output

    The latest dirvers are the best, for some kerenels only the latest work - others simply crash the kernel ad modum "big $-driven corp" "another OS".

    Yup, forgot about the commented lines.

    Also, the newest may not be the best. On me Slack 9.1 the 5536 wouldn't work yet 4496 works fine. I suggested 4496 as it ran perfect when I had RH9.
