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.

Just recently I downloaded the Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo for Linux. Uncompressing it was relatively smooth, but when I tried to run the program, I got this error message:
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
Either GL_EXT_bgra or glDrawRangeElements not supported- bailing out.
Exiting due to error
I tried to look for solutions online, but I didn't find anything that helped me fix this error.
I am currently running Debian 2.4.24
I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 440 128MB as my video card.
I also have 512 RAM.
At this point, the only other option that I can think of is to update my video card driver. However, all other graphic intensive programs on my computer runs fine with the current drivers. However, if I do the update and if that doesn't work, I really don't know what to do next. Any suggestions are appreciated, and thanks in advance.
Hmm...I sorry don't have an exact fix for your problem, but I do know that the first line: Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0" is harmless, I think it's a feature not found in XFree86 and is not needed, so that line can be ignored. That narrows your problem down to the 2nd line of your error message.
Obvious things to check are are you using the latest Nvidia Linux driver from their website and not the builtin XFree86 driver nv? Is GLX enabled? Can you play other OpenGL games/apps with no problems? Sorry I don't have more specific help.
No, i do not have the current Nvidia drivers, and I should probably get that next. And i probably have the builtin XFree86 drivers right now. I asked someone else about this problem, he told me to enable GLX module in the XFree86, and to make dri GLcore disabled. As far as I know, you both agree that the GLX has to be enabled, but unfortunately I have absolutely no clue how to do this. =) I'm about to search online on how to configure this, but if you can give me some input on how to enable the GLX on XFree86, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
PS: I have not tried any other OpenGL games on Linux with my current set up yet.
Follow the instructions on that page and in the README and you should be on your way. Make sure you have your kernel's source tree, as it is needed for the Nvidia installer to build the kernel driver module.
I finally got it to work. I basically had to download the NVidia drivers and configure the XFree86 in order for it to work. I got the NVidia drivers as debian packages, which made downloading them easy. I got these three files:
I looked at the README and did what it told me to do. Then, I went to modconf and installed the NVidia mod. Afterwards, I went to XFree86 Config and configured things a little bit. At first it was pointing to the generic video drivers, but I told it to point to nvidia instead. Afterwards, I made sure glx was enabled, and proceeded to disable dri and GLcore. After that was done, I restarted X, and tried tunning it again. This time, it worked.
