well try the installer anyway
maybe it allows you to skip the cd
then set the symlinks to your UT directory yourself, to use the same data files
it's a wonderful feature of ext2/3
I've installed UT in /opt/games/ut, but that's a freedom of choice you have. The folders Help, Maps, Music, NetGamesUSA, Sounds, Textures, and Web are all stored in my windows-game parition.
with symlinks, to "fake" their existance in the linux /opt/games/ut folder.
IF you have problems with Quake 3, you'll get them too in Unreal Tournament; you don't have 3d hardware rendering enabled. (fortunately UT is not that demanding for 3D graphics)
Try to find something at the website of your malefactor, www.google.com, groups.google.com
, or the dri status page
. There must be something there.
... and if you're really lucky you can just select your video card in the KDE X configuration tool...! that was the first thing that amazed me; I was really thinking about some /etc/X11/XF86Config horror to get my screen working, but it worked out-of-the-box, even at a better refresh rate then Windows XP still does. Nowadays, I also edit XF86Config by hand, because it isn't really that hard.
Honestly, it took me 1 month before I found the website with ATI drivers for XFree86 4.3. (because ATI didn't have them at that moment) ...but I didn't really care, because I wasn't planning to play all games at Linux anyway
..but to show it's possible is a cool thing anyway.
