There is a linux version for enemy territory which works well and is free

You need a good graphics card, usually that means nvidia (not sure what the ati linux drivers are like)

d/l and install the nvidia drivers for linux from the www.nvidia.com, make sure you read the installation instructions.

d/l and install the linux version of et, it is very easy to do.

Obviously hes playing the linux version, I think (still a n00b), wants to try to start/play in the shell.

Yeah, I believe to make use of OpenGL with anything, you've gotta run it within X11... Which makes sense.

The only other alternative I guess would be SVGAlib and enemy territory requires GL.

However, I think there's a way to start just your basic X shell with a small term window and just run ET from there...it would take much less memory than KDE or GNOME (or even blackbox at that point)

I remember seeing it described somewhere in the forums here.

You can't run it without X11..
But you can run it without all the KDE/Gnome/flux so on window-manager-clutter
And loss of speed
What you want is this
In your console type in:

xinit

Then inside the 1 xtem that will open up, type:

et

It'll be much faster

Happy Gaming

np
Just misread the question. I would have said "without X" rather than "out of X", must be an americanism

et-linux-2.55.x86.run
i think that is the name of the file you probably have, so first i am going to say is, you dont open that file, and thats where you are going wrong, so check out this thread:
installing run files
