wrong with America's ARMY game


I have just now install the game "America's Army'. And when I finished it I started the game. But it showed me in the terminal things as follow:

[root@xiaofei root]# armyops
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


History:

Exiting due to error
[root@xiaofei root]#


------------------------

What does Couldn't find matching GLX visual mean?

thanks.

try running: glxgears or tuxracer or something 3D.

That looks like your openGL isnt set up.

Do you have an Nvidia card? Do you have the official drivers?
