[SOLVED] No display for most games


Well... there is a display, but it goes away immediately for tremulous, nexuiz, cube, savage2, and pretty much all the other games. It's fine fore wesnoth. GLXGears works just fine. So not quite sure what else it could be.

xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Module"
    Load "dbe"
    Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 7900GT"
    Driver "nvidia"
    VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName "GeForce 7900 GT/GTO"
    Option "DPI" "96 x 96"
    Option "NoLogo" "true"
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
    Option "UseEvents" "false"
    Option "RenderAccel" "true"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "true"
EndSection
There are no error messages in either the terminal or tty. The game is still running, there just isn't any display.

never seen that it limits stuff. but it may be needed . not sure I use nvidia and that is just wierd. as root back up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file now as root in a terminal type nvidia-settings and let it set your card up just click save to xorg. now this allows nvida program to run in auto. all your display needs some times it works some times it does not. good luck

Yeah, it seems removing that fixed it.
