dos? DOS is a microsoft Operating system. You mean a shell. Or whatever. hmm actually i don't know exactly what it is called.. it's certainly not dos thou! :-)
Where are you when you try to run harddrake? what are you trying to do?

You'll need to provide a lot more information to be able to get help about problems like that. I'd hazard a guess that tuxracer doesn't like your graphics card drivers. wouldn't count on it tho. Try seeing if theres any know OpenGL prolebms with that cord under linux. Tuxracer uses OpenGL to achieve it's amazing graphics.

And don't double post abuot teh same question please (tuxracer)

excuse me.. tuxracer.... desperate..??? ahem...

I just want to know how the little penguin can happily slide on his front, over jaged rocks at 40mph..?

i had a quick search about voodoo, and i think there's drivers out there specifally for it. i had that trouble with my nvidia geforce 2 card. it's all because some big poncy companies 'do not wish to share their intelectual propetry with the public'......

Cool Thanks

It's a bit late here in London, infact it is around 00:45, anyway thanks mate, I will be hunting for the drivers for the voodoo 4500. This should rectify the prob with hardrake and my buddie tuxy (tuxracer), it's funny I was saying that same thing to a mate of mine about the penguin.................lol

tux racer not running...

Maybe you may be having problems with the MESA package not being fully configurated.
In your desktop click on Software installer, wait untill it loads it all, then go to the part where you search for packages that could be installed and look for the MESA package.
Select the packages you would like to install and click on install selected.
Try to run the game, if it still doesn't work, try going to the game's web site and take a look at the FAQ.

same Prob

When I try to open Hard Drake m system crashes to a black screen with a
curser in the top left hand corner. Any idea on what might be causing this?

System info:
Asus P4T Motherboard
Pentium 4 1.7 GHz
Geforce 3
512 M Samsung PC-800
Sound Blaster Live! Plat
Cisco Aironet 340
NEC USB 2.0
Mandrake 8.1

I thought it might be the Aironet card so I removed that and tried again
with the same result.
