There you go! As I've said, the problem is not tux-racer specific. Use
glxgears as your reference to find out if you have your DRI working ok or
At this time you don't have a working DRI. There has been several postings
about "glxgears show no gears". As I've said before, I've also had that
problem and I got around it installing some different Xfree from a so
called "drm trunk".

I'm ssh'ing to a remote console at the moment, so I can't give you my
Xfree config now, but I'll send it later... At that time I'll take a look
at your files, but I don't promise I'll find the solution... I hope

The radeon.o that I have working was compiled from some package
"drm-trunk.tar.gz" and I'm pretty sure it was gotten from
