SDL Parachute error


Okay, I'm sure you've all seen this kind of message before, but I've searched and searched...

I'm building a system for someone. They have an MSI KT4AV-L, an Asylum GeForce MX 4000, Athlon XP 2600+, 512 MB RAM, Fedora Core 2 (retrieved from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...re/2/i386/iso/). I downloaded and installed the latest nVidia driver for the GeForce as per the instructions found at http://www.fedorafaq.org/custom_nvidia.html. I DID remove the x.org Mesa libGL library:
Code:
rpm -e --nodeps xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL
Some games work flawlessly. However, if I try to run Tux Racer, for example, I get this: Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

Note: This never happened until I installed the latest and "greatest" nVidia driver.

Also, after I installed the new nvidia driver, I lost sound. I had sound beforehand, but now there's no sound. Why would a graphics card driver affect the soundcard (built in with the Hyperion 4 in 1 onboard audio)?

Am I needing to update something else?

Okay. Satisfying all recommendations at http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_mixer/, I'm going to install the following (I have to burn to CD and install at a location remote from where I currently am--no Internet connection on the system I'm building... yet):
  • libogg-1.1.tar.gz
  • libvorbis-1.0.1.tar.gz (There are RH9 RPMs for these two, but I don't know if they'll work with FC2)
  • SDL-1.2.7-1.i386.rpm
  • SDL-devel-1.2.7-1.i386.rpm
  • SDL_mixer-1.2.5-1.i386.rpm
  • smpeg-0.4.4-1.i386.rpm

I'll update and let know if this worked.
