Alright.. So, the screen goes black when I try to run Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast (Q3 based) and I'm forced to restart. (Note: The main, 2d menu works fine..). I have not had the chance to test it with other games at this time, but I believe it has something to do with my video drivers. I'm running an ATI Radeon 9600XT (Yeah.. ATI has horrible issues with Linux) and Xorg 6.8.2. I'm under slackware, so I converted ATI's RPM to a TGZ then installpkg'ed it, and then went thru their make.sh and make_install.sh scripts to get the driver loaded. At this point, I ran fglrxconfig to set everything up, and it appreared to have completed successfully..
I've been getting only around 200fps with glxgears =\, and as I stated, the screen goes black when I try to run 3d apps under cedega 4.3.

Thanks for your time and effort,

really ... ATI sucks when it comes to compatiblity. My friend has a old 5200, and he popped out his horrible for linux 9800 XT Platinum (Platinum??) And put in his 5200. Anyway, across the board, he got better preformance in games (CSS 14 FPS -> 35 FPS...) in linux either horrible mobo -> video card -> distro compatibility or something......
