Games do not work


Some of my games do not work and I don't know why.
I use Mandrake 8.1 and several of the games including Flight Gear simply will not come on at all. What I am doing wrong?

you can't just expect an answer by saying "it doesn't work" you have to give some more information. make sure you try running the game from a console, and see if there are any decent error messages
