Unhappy Enemy territory won't fully load.

I hope someone out there can help. My problem is that after i install Enemy Territory AFTER the install of my Nvidia drivers onto RH9.0, the game starts up, i set the initial account settings, click 'Create' and it crashes to the desktop. I grabbed this error message from the terminal. It is much bigger then this, I just think that this is the most important part. Does someone know what this means?

NV distance fog: disabled

Shutdown tty console

My system is a stable:
P4 2.4
GF 4 TI4600
512 MB DDR

in windows XP it works great. I think maybe the video driver isn't properly installed. although Tux racer works fine.

Didn't fix it. It loads up fine. it just now i got it to get into the actual game. but gets really chunky.. does this have something to do with punkbuster? i would assume its compatible considering its a linux install.
just locks up after a few seconds of play. very discouraging

Are you sure your OpenGL is working right for hardware acceleration?

The error
----- Initializing Renderer ----
----- R_Init -----
...loading QGL_Init: dlopen failed: /usr/lib/tls/ shared object cannot be dlopen()ed: static TLS memory too small
Looks like you have a missing library...

run glxinfo and see if you see a line
Direct Rendering: Yes!
If it says no, then something's not set up right with your video drivers.

Good luck.

You need to upgrade your kernel to the last version.
kernel-2.4.20-20.9 At the moment.

Then you will need to reinstall the Nvidia drivers. The drivers need to be compiled for the kernel you are using, so you will also need to install the kernel-source rpm for the drivers to be compiled.

That should solve it. I had the same problem and it is working now.
