Question Unreal Tournament 2004 Graphics Error using Mandrake 9.2

Hey All,
I installed Untreal Tournament 2004 (demo) on my computer last night, but when I went to run it, I got the following error:
[root@localhost Unreal]# ut2004demo
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


Exiting due to error
[root@localhost Unreal]#

This error came after the splash screen had loaded, but before the full screen program opened. My screen resolution is set at 1024x780 or whatever it is... I forget the exact numbers.......

I am running Mandrake 9.2 on:
2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 AMD integrated
370 MB memory
40 GB HD
If you could give me some things to try out, I would be greatly appreciative, as I need a good game to play.

do you have a video card which supports open gl? Although I've never played ut2004 my guess is that you dont' have it installed.

If you just want to look at the game it will probably open and run (slooooow) if you open a terminal and type:
ut2004demo -software

Like I said its only good for looking around its way to slow for playing.

Ok. its a SiS video card, and I'm just using the drivers that mandrake installed for me, as SiS doesn't make linux drivers (that I know of) for their products.
