Torcs Game, FC2, Rage 128 card - Very Slow!!


Hi all

Firstly I am a newbie to Linux (quite experienced with the other flavour though), I understand many commands, directory structure, but when it comes to hardware configuration and the like I have no idea.

I installed Torcs from rpm to a 1.8GHz P4 / 256MB RAM with FC2 Linux and a Rage 128 (Ultra?) card. Everything works - no error messages - except when the race starts the frame rate becomes non-existant (best reffered as seconds per frames rather than fps!)

I have followed several threads alluding to Xorg, r128 drivers and the like but I need a real laymans explaination as to why this wont work and what if anything can be done to fix it.

Appreciate any help.

Steve

I never had any luck getting ATI's drivers to work w/ 3d acceleration. I would never buy another ATI. (btw my old nvidia card works great in linux)
