I am not even sure if this is a problem. When I start a graphical game in x, such as,(galactica??), I think that is it. Anyway, when I start it up, the system goes way down hill. Is there any way that you can use software graphics acceleration(like Direct X on Win), for linux. BTW, my distro is RH7.3. I have the intel 810 chipset w/ 4MB? of memory. Is there something I can do to make it perform better, short of getting a video card?
