It looks like you need to modify a line in your xorg.conf,the following links all point to the same solution:

I also have tried
Code:
startx `which quake4-demo` -- :1 -depth 24
and

Code:
./quake4-demo +set r_useSDLModes 1
Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 quake4-demo
all commands as root or non-root, same error

Are you using a 64bit o/s by any chance?.
I run Q4 myself on my machine,and to run it i have to use the ia32-libs package,which lets me run 32bit applications like Q4.
Can you run any other games that use 3d acceleration?.
Have you tried running glxgears from a console,this should give you an indication if you have acceleration working.

His drivers are definitely installed properly, but you are correct that if he's running a 64 bit distribution, he needs to install the 32 bit drivers to run 32 bit opengl applications such as quake4.

Yes I am running Fedora KDE 64 Bit...

I don't known if this makes any different..

Code:
[lhorace@comp1 /]$ sudo find -iname libGL.so.1
./usr/lib/libGL.so.1
./usr/lib64/libGL.so.1
./usr/lib64/catalyst/libGL.so.1
[lhorace@comp1 /]$
what other 3D games should I try to see if it work

Note, if I 'yum install game' it will install a 64 Bit version...

glxgears with and without compositing.. I did try running Quake4 without compositing also

Code:
[lhorace@comp1 /]$ glxgears
2834 frames in 5.0 seconds = 566.793 FPS
2966 frames in 5.0 seconds = 593.025 FPS
2907 frames in 5.0 seconds = 581.397 FPS
2713 frames in 5.0 seconds = 542.553 FPS
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
      after 41 requests (41 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
[lhorace@comp1 /]$ glxgears

I think we can rule out your graphics drivers,they appear to be working.
It would probably be a good idea asking at LQ's Fedora forum if there are any 32bit libraries you can install.
Or ask how do other Fedora users run Q4 on a 64bit machine.
Sorry i can't help further,it's been a number of years since i used Fedora myself.
Post back if you find the solution,i'd be interested to hear how it's done with Fedora.

My Wine is 32 Bit, I check appdb.whinehq.org and Quake4 1.4.2 is in platium status, I'll give it a try and see if it works... I will check fedora forum, if nothing comes up.. I'll file a bug at redhat.com

I'm getting somewhere now, I went to http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux...2582f7fc39ba5c and followed the section about reporting bugs and it was suggested that when I run the games... Issue this command..

Code:
quake4-demo +set developer 1 +set logfile 1
And I got a an error, unable to open $HOME/.quake4-demo/q4base/qconsole.log... I checked my home directory and notice that the folder was root root .quake4-demo. So chown the folder to user user, everything seems to work expect this time, I get a different error

SOLVRED

I was on a RPMFUSION channel on Freenode asking, an unrelated question about another video problem that I was having with OpenGL. I was told to install xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i586, that fix my initial issue and while at it fix my Quake4 *Unable to initialize OpenGL* issue.

The point is: 32 Bit apps needs 32 Bit openGL compatibility libraries.

Note: The 32 Bit openGL libraries (ATi catalyst Libs) can be installed along side with x86_64 Catalyst driver
