Unhappy Please help me play these games...

I can't play the following games...

Tux Racer

...and many more because I always get the following error...

"Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0"."

Is there an easy solution for a newbie to solve this problem or am I stuck playing Windows games for the rest of my life?

i think there was a guy in the hardware forum that had the exact same problem. maybe you could check that (it might have been bumped back a page). it was pretty recent, i saw it on the front page.

EDIT: heres the exact link, shouldve provided it earlier :

PS: the guy DID get the problem solved.
