Angry doom3 probs

i am running mandrake 10.1 with kernel 2.10.3 and a nvidia graphics card. When i installed doom3 and tried to run it i got this at the end:

------- Initializing renderSystem --------
using ARB renderSystem
renderSystem initialized.
5151 strings read from strings/english.lang
Couldn't open journal files
execing editor.cfg
execing default.cfg
couldn't exec DoomConfig.cfg
couldn't exec autoexec.cfg
5151 strings read from strings/english.lang
----- Initializing Sound System ------
sound system initialized.
----- R_InitOpenGL -----
Sys_Error: Unable to initialize OpenGL

i have googled around and i havent found anything that worked for me yet. this also seemed to b a common prob in gentoo. heres what was given to do for gentoo :

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ doom3
USE="nptl" emerge glibc

but for the first i got an error that that library couldnt be opened and for the second i dont have the command "merge".
thanx for ur help......i hope :P
