i845G and UT2003

I have Debian GNU/Linux Woody
Kernel 2.4.21-pre5-ac3
XFree86 (4.30)
MSI 6580 MB with i845G chipset.
I have a DVI ADD card to connect to my Dell 1703FP

I can boot to XFree86 server into Gnome just fine at
I am using ALSA Driver for sound 0.9.07rc2 (I believe)
512MB of memory, 80GB HDD. USB mouse, keyboard.

Other than the AGP ADD card (For Digital output) everything else I am using is onboard.

XMMS will play mp3's just fine. .... nice.

However, when I launch UT2003, patch 2199, with bonus packs:
I get the UT / Logo and the screen goes black.
right before the Nvidia Logo appears when Gorge breads out, the program exits back to Gnome Desktop. I will past my XFConfig-4 file for additional information. Any help would be appreciated.:

# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 server configuration file) generated by dexconf, the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
# If you want your changes to this file preserved by dexconf, only make changes
# before the "### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION" line above, and/or after the
# "### END DEBCONF SECTION" line below.
# To change things within the debconf section, run the command:
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
# as root. Also see "How do I add custom sections to a dexconf-generated
# XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file?" in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz.

See your output from those...
>glxinfo | grep render
>cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep WW
>cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep EE first confirm you have DRI enabled and no major glitch with your X server.

Also if you start the game from a terminal it will probably dump the error to the console when it segfaults.

From what I understand, currently ut2003 will only run on nVidia cards under linux, check your README file, or try the UT2003 forums.

As far as a tutorial on installing the right drivers for linux, you can find them at the aforementioned forums, or here which will go through compiling the nVidia drivers for Red Hat 8 step by step.

Beyond that, I don't know what to tell you, UT2003 runs great on my box.

AMD XP 1700+
40 GB Western Digital 7200RPM
GeForce 4 Ti 4200
MSI KT3 Ultra Raid
Red Hat 8

My advice is to stay away from onboard video if you're going to game, it just wastes resources, and possibly slots... you DO have an AGP slot, right?

This is the output I got from your inquiry.

direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 845G 20021115
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(WW) The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/" does not exist.
(WW) The directory "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/freefont/" does not exist.

(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
(EE) Failed to load module "Glcore" (module does not exist, 0)

I think I see what is going on:

When I switch the Renderer in the .ut2003/System/UT2003.ini file from Renderer OpenGL to Renderer Null it plays, however I do not have a screen.
I think I need updated OpenGL drivers for my chipset under linux.
I did install the latest kernel, 2.4.20, with Xfree86 version 4.3.0.
When I check the UT2003.log file it reads this: (non relevant information left out)

I may buy a video card, however I really do not want to. :-(


Thanks for your reply. I did get UT2003 to work unders Windows XP D3D with a similar hardware setup. The difference is under Windows XP The D3D renderer is being used not the OpenGL.

Thanks for the information though. :-D

hello ppl dont know if you sorted this problem but this might help

dont worry about what is said above as a matter of fact UT2003 was made on an ati FireGL card watch the vidio of the making of and look at the programers desktop tray. has an ATI control aplet the nvedia logo is just to make more money.

Anyway run YuM or apt-get sounds like your Mesa librarys are not correctly installed or the symlinks and directory entries are missing. if the yum innstaller updates files i.e. xorg or xfree86 then it will update the symlinks and directory veriables.

failing that get the updated RPM's manually and try that if still not then you have a user rights access problem you may have installed in root to the wrong folder. see i dont know if you runing it from a user login. if it is installed in ya home folder for the spacific user then discard all this but if installed as root and you did not use the usr/local../../games path that defaults to you may have the rights problem.

I do think it is your mesa libs or folders or along those lines get yum updates um all for you.

above the yum and apt-get URL from fedora US if you runing redhat that is try to keep to trusted servers read info in page. and use GPL.
