Games Problem


I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but I believe it's a software issue.

I am running SuSE personal 9.0 and a few of the included games work, but for some reason 'frozen bubbles' and 1 or 2 others refuse to work. The game starts fine. It even plays. The problem is that the image is horribly skewed and yet every other game (for the most part) works fine.

Any ideas?

try running the game from console and see if any errors pop up, that would be my first thing to try.
