hi all, could anyone shine some light on why i am having problems with tuxracer and tuxkart on a Dell Lat. C800 laptop with an 800MHz PIII and 256Mb of RAM, running sarge with X 4.1.0. the graphics adapter (Rage Mobility M4) is handled by X's ati/r128 driver after agpgart and the r128 4.1 DRM module is loaded (it's a custom kernel 2.4.19). KDE 2.2.2 is running as window/session-manager. 1. tuxkart 0.1.0-4 Versions of packages tuxkart depends on: ii glutg3 3.7-14 ii libc6 2.2.5-11.1 ii libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 1:2.95.4-11 ii plib1 1.4.1-1 ii tuxkart-data 0.1.0-4 ii xlibmesa3 4.1.0-17 ii xlibmesa3 [libgl1] 4.1.0-17 ii xlibs 4.1.0-17 When the program starts, the mouse becomes very jumpy (VERY jumpy - it takes me about 15 seconds to get it over the Quit button, and another 15 for the system to register the click). XFree86 goes up to 98-99% CPU usage, system load just climbs. everything return to normal when tuxkart is killed. 2. tuxracer Versions of packages tuxracer depends on: ii libc6 2.2.5-11.1 ii libsdl-mixer1.2 1.2.4-1.1 ii libsdl1.2debian 1.2.4-1 ii libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 1:2.95.4-11 ii tcl8.3 8.3.3-7 ii tuxracer-data 0.61-1 ii xlibmesa3 [libgl1] 4.1.0-17 ii xlibs 4.1.0-17 When the program is started, the sound plays fine, but the graphics are messed up. There's a solid white vertical stripe of about 5 cm in size going through the entire picture at 65% across. it doesn't matter whether it's windowed or fullscreen. any tips appreciated. i have converted almost my entire family to debian, but if the games don't work, they are not happy. and i know jack about games, graphics, or multimedia. -- martin; (greetings from the heart of the sun.) \____ echo mailto: !#^."<*>"|tr "<*> mailto:" net@madduck three things are certain: death, taxes and lost data. guess which has occurred.
