Display crash after using OpnGL in Mandrake 10.0


When I use full screen OpenGL applications in my new install of Mandrake Linux (namely Tux Racer and Cube) the applications run fine (although Tux runs extremely slowly) but as soon as i try to leave them the system freezes and i can't do anything anymore. I htink it might be the X server crashing but that's just the thoughts of a newbie poking around in the dark. does anyone know how I fix this or if i need to install extra libraries or something so that I can use these applications properly?

what type of card is it? I had a similar problem with an ati card that only liked to be run in certain resolution/depth combinations.

It's one of the Intel extreme in the i865 chipset.. i don't know the exact specs off the top of my head.. I'll try changing the resolution.. but i'm at my screen's default which is 1280x1024 or something.. can never remember the exact number of pixels..

you could try changing opengl versions. check you have all the required fonts etc installed for the programs that are crashing.

Are there any logs left behind? look in /var/log for X(something).log (mine is Xorg.0.log). You could also try running the programs in the same display depth as the xsession, though i doubt that'll help.

I found out that I have a pre releaase of XFree86 so it might be that. how do i change my opengl version? btw the logs.. I don't really understand them.. most of them just deal with my keyboard and mouse... and then there's a few mentions about the screen and the and gfx pipeline and stuff but there aren't any lines proclaiming any error or anything..
