Question tux racer - X server -too slow


Hi all

For long time I could not run tuxracer as we dont have 'hardware accelerators'. But sometime back after little 'Googl-ing' I added the line

Load "dri"

in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config tux racer was really fast.
We run SuSE 8.0 in a Dual Athlon (tyan motherboard)


Weeks later once X -server froze and I killed X server. I was unable to login (as kde stopped as soon as 'initializing system services') then I found that ~/.kde had got corrupted. Hence I deleted it. Still I could not login. hence I deleted .Xdefaults, .xsession-errors, .ICEauthority in my home directory.

Also I removed /tmp/kde-rose, /tmp/ksocket-rose
/tmp/mcop-rose/
(rose is user name)

Now I am able to login but tuxracer is very slow (as slow as it was before adding the line >> load "dri" )

(I have checked ~/.tuxracer/options and it is fine. also fine is tuxracer files)

Is there anything I had done too foolish... and to get new life for my tux?

I have pasted the /etc/X11/XF86Config file below for info.

many thanks,
Karthik
