I just installed Americas Army and when I try to run it I get "Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0"." in the command pormpt. Any ideas?
look if you have xfree86-dri installed on your pc
You may not have --> Option "dri" <-- In /etc/X11/XF86Config (or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4). In order to be of further assistance, I'd suggest posting your system specs, and the contents of the mentioned file.
S3 ProSavage something-or-other - I'm using the default VESA (I think that's what it's called) graphics driver
Sony Multiscan 17sf monitor
You might want to try adding this to Section "Module":
Also, as noted above, you may need to install the XFree86-dri package (if you have installed XFree86 by package, i.e RPM or DEB). The other thing is to check out if your video card manufacturer has native drivers. Not sure what model your card is, but I've found drivers for S3 cards online. This page for instance --> http://www.probo.com/timr/savage40.html. If your card is a S3 Savage, then you'd need to change "vesa" to "savage" as well.
Hope it works out. Remember, www.google.com/linux is a great resource for finding information (search for "S3" returns 57,000 results)
This seems to be a common error, but with others it seems the game loads up whereas mine doesn't. I've added the above two lines lines to the config file and now I get a different error message (as well as the orginal):
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual
Exiting due to error
henry_s, can you run glxinfo and post it here?
It looks to me like you dont not even have you video card drivers installed what do you have for a video card ? AAO needs direct rendering.. I just installed my ATI drivers and AAO still wont work... Unreal 2003 runs great...

so, henry_s, what video card do you have? download the drivers and install and see if that works.
I've tried - It's a no-go. I'm thinking of getting a new graphics card, the one I've got at the moment doesn't support DirectX 9 (Dual boot with XP) and has had problems with all the linux games I have downloaded.
