Mandrake 10.1

After solving my issues with triple booting, Mandrake is up and running! Thanks to all how have helped (homey and ruudra).
I have a weird issue now, and I reinstalled twice.
When I open Armegtron and tux racer so far, all that appears is a black screen with SDL_App in the title bar.
I have tried in both gone and kde; in genome the entire screen blanks out with a mouse cursor, in gnome they are windowed.
What can I do?
The video is onboard, 1GB RAM, 2.0 Ghz proc.

Thanks in advance!

Added by edit:
It is impossible to kill the game(s) by 'x'ing them. ps does not list them as running processess.

One thing that raises a red flag is that those games require OpenGL and 3D Acceleration. You are using an onboard video card, which probably does not support OpenGL. Play some of those other 2D games. I'm sure they would work.

Also, if you want, try running those programs in the console and you'll see some outputs. Copy/paste the outputs and here and we'll see if we can sift through them.
