ut2003 glx visual problem
I have found some threads in LQ mentioning this problem but I can't seem to fix it. I tried updating my nvidia drivers and it doesn't help.

The problem is when I run Unreal Tournament 2003 or 2004 demo I get this error message:

fcntl: Invalid argument
fcntl: Invalid argument
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


Exiting due to error
Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? :confused:

Hello tutwabee and all the other tux-friends,

have you solved that problem?

I try to get UT2003 runnin´ , but after successful installation, all I get is the splash-screen and then - after a short while - the following message:

user@linux:~/bin> ut2003
fcntl: Invalid argument
fcntl: Invalid argument
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
OpenGL renderer relies on DXTC/S3TC support.


Exiting due to error

Any idea how to solve that?
I got a ATI graphics card an I installed the newest driver from

Yes - I´m running Suse 9.1 ;-)

Can anybody help me ???

I did solve my problem. The problem was that I hadn't added the correct items in my xorg.conf file. You need to read the instructions file for your graphics card (mine was nvidia) to see what to add.

Is the fglrx module loaded correctly? Check with lsmod.
