Armagetron won't play smoothly anymore..

Hi all.

I'm not new to computing, but new to Linux and this forum. What a great OS. I've been using Linux for about 11-12 months now without to much bother, nothing I couldn't solve myself. There is one problem I'm having at the moment though.

When I run Armagetron it jumps so bad I can't play it... Now the game has been installed on the same machine and worked fine in the past... But for some reason, I can't get it to work now I've reinstalled the pc... any ideas.. I'm not sure what has changed when I've reinstalled the whole machine. I always write step by steps to help with this situation, but seem to have lost it.... and now I'm lost.. Dhooo?????

Armagetron is version 0.2.4 on Mandrake 9. I'm using an NVidea TNT2 32MB. Like I said, I've not changed any hardware which is all working fine. The problem seems to be a configuration issue, I don't think the machine is running Mesa/Opengl correctly; Chromium doesn't play correctly either...

Hope someone can help.

Cheers in advance.
