Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

[root@ user]# cd cube
[root@ cube]# ./cube_unix
./bin_unix/linux_client: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Thanks a lot for your post I did go to package INSTALLER in Mandrake Control Center and there was a package like that. Now, my game is purple, red, geen, yellow in color. The game does run, but in those colors.... speckled like salt and pepper.
hmmmmmmmmmmm. well i managed to get cube to work but after i just about downloaded all the SDL libs and recompiled them. no idea on the color...the only problem i have is that sometimes it quits on its own.
I have an intel 810 chipset onboard. Mandrake usually handles package dependencies and did prompt of some. Changing gamma settings worked when Diablo 2 on Windows long ago had a color mess up. It doesn't work here. I'm also getting freezes when I get killed in multiplayer and when the mutliplayer game ends. I could show you the colour errors if I can take an ingame screenshot. I tried windowed, and it colours my entire desktop.

Did RHLinuxGuy's method work for you? If so, you don't need to upgrade. DRI stands for Direct Rendering Infrastructure, and it's an open-source 3D accelerator for all cards that don't have their own drivers (ie, nVidia or high-end ATI's).
