Question Tux Racer


Well I am trying too get Tux Racer started for my son on Mandrake 9.1 and man the program barely moves - it loads but it is impossible to play too slow

I checked the Graphic card drivers they are fine loaded okay


Any ideas

Thanks

Now that's the strange thing, with 9.0, the drivers were auto installed, but I know with my 9.1 I cant use hardware accelerated GL until I install the nVidia driver&kernel patch. Maybe nVidia's change in installation procedure made MandrakeSoft change policy?
9.0 was fully configured from the off

Cool, screen grabs are good
wget is not, I've already downloaded the file via a gui.
I dont expect any problems, but I'm having too much fun with my working system atm
