***********************************************************
You are using software Mesa (no hardware acceleration)!

If this is intentional, add
"+set r_allowSoftwareGL 1"
to the command line when starting the game.

and then i tried to open enemy territory using thi +set r_allowSoftwareGL 1 command
and it the game opens but its way to laggy to even do anything.

so i opened xorg.conf and this is what the driver device section says...

# === ATI device section ===

Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI Graphics Adapter"
Driver "fglrx"


and also i ran flgrxinfo and this is what came up..

display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.2.1)


CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT

Using XFree86-VidModeExtension Version 2.2
This bit looks funny to me - FC4 uses xorg.

Have you searched LQ for others with this problem? For eg:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=361268
"Mesa GLX Indirect is a software opengl renderer and ET won't run on that."

I also see (google)
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...ewpost&t=75203
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedo.../msg00274.html

That should be a start.

I gave you three links - there are many more.

Your initialisation failed to find any xfree gl stuff it looked for because you don't have xfree86 - this is fine, xorg is better. The initialisation then uses
GL_RENDERER: Mesa GLX Indirect

However, that message you faled to understand points out that ET will not work with MESA. You must obtain and install the opengl drivers for your video card. nvidia was used as an example.

You're other try at getting ET to run involved, in effect, not using and acceleration. Naturally this is very slow - as you found out.

Note:
You don't have to understand all the stuff on a technical discussion to get value out of it - try to get the gist from the bits you do understand. Skim a thread for when someone says "thanks, that worked real good", then read the previous post (referring backwards until you get all the references). Research is a skill.

Where you need to understand something you think is crucial - then you can easily state what that is and post a question about it specifically. "I don't understand" dosn't help me help you

Your ATI drivers aren't working properly. Actually, they aren't working at all. I use Nvidia so I don't have to deal with all these stupid ATI problems but from my best guess, reinstalling the drivers should fix the issue. I'd say that since you've installed the ATI drivers, you've installed Mesa and it's overwritten the ATI symlinks with it's own which means your OpenGL apps are using that instead of the OpenGL supplied by your graphics card. Software 3D is crap.
