Enemy Territory Help


Hello,
I recently downloaded the Enemy territory Linux version (et.x86.run) and installed the script in the konsole. Now when trying to run the file 'et' the screen flashes black. If I try and do it in the konsole, here is what I get:

Anyhelp will be appreciated.

I hate to *bump* this. But it is very important to me.

Thank you,

You need to install proper drivers for your video card. Apparently the one(generic driver) you are using doesnt support 3-d so you cant play the game. Find out which videocard you have and search for drivers on google or this forum.
