Okay, I'm experiencing a problem with a five year old laptop that I've just wiped clean, and put Fedora 8 on. Everything seems to run fine, so long as it's not a 3D game. First, I tried running OpenArena (Quake III: Arena), and I got a strange result: it ended my session and logged me out.
I thought that the problem was that my computer was not powerful enough to play a game that had been originally developed 2 years before it was built. (For a laptop, it seemed possible.) I then tried to run PrBoom, a port of Doom, and got the same result.
So I'm wondering, what am I doing wrong?
Specs of my computer:
Compaq Evo N115
AMD Duron, not sure of the speed
Fedora 8 i386
K Desktop Environment
