Sauerbraten and Mandriva 2008 Spring

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to play Sauerbraten Assassin Edition under 2008 Spring. I've installed all available SDL libraries and even succeeded to go through the installation's procedure, but when I try to play the game at the point of "Recalculating Geometry" shown in the corner, the X server crashes and I'm getting the login screen. The same troubles are with all the SDL driven games. What's wrong?

First question - do you have GLX working? (3d accel)

 

open console (Konsole)

type:

 

glxinfo | grep direct

 

see what is says.

 

Also if you start the game via konsole you may get a hint of whats wrong from the output.

For your code:

direct rendering: Yes

 

Dirvers in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Driver "kbd"

Driver "mouse"

Driver "ati"

 

glxgears test:

5580 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1115.999 FPS

6153 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1230.503 FPS

6086 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1217.163 FPS

6289 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1257.607 FPS

6144 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1228.718 FPS

6141 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1228.029 FPS

6070 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1213.846 FPS

6280 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1255.983 FPS

Driver "ati"

As ac_dispatcher has already noted, we need to see any error messages you have when you start it in a terminal.

 

Do you have all the SDL packages installed that are listed in the readme.txt? What ATI card do you have? Have you tried using the fglrx driver?
