Wolfenstein:ET doesnt work on hoary!


I have installed wolfenstein:ET and when I try to run the game is just show me a blank screen.....I'm waiting...waiting....waiting....until 5 minutes and there is nothing happen.....just black screen...so what's wrong?

I have installed ATI driver and tested well.....fgl_glxgears+glxgears shows reasonable score and glxinfo is ok too.....so what's the problem?

It works perfectly (usually) on my Hoary box (but I'm using an NVIDIA card). Sometimes I get the blank screen thing and a reboot usually sorts it out.
Have you tried launching it from the command line to see if any eror messages are displayed?

This might help. There's also a couple of threads on the Ubuntu forum about "signal 11" and Enemy Territory.

Got me stumped I'm afraid.
It would probably be worth asking on the Ubuntu User list or on the forum on the Ubuntu home site.

Try running this as root before starting ET:
Code:
echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
If it works, put the text in whatever file ubuntu uses to run scripts at startup
