Can anyone help with this?
I've installed Trackballs and all dependencies but I recieve this message when I start the game:
setLocale: -> en_US
Welcome to Trackballs.
Using /usr/local/bin/../share/trackballs as gamedata directory.
Could not initialize screen resolution.
Error message: 'X11 driver not configured with OpenGL'

How do I configure X11 to work with OpenGL?
Thanks for any help
unfortunatly it's a bit hard to give generic advice on how to configure your X11 in general. It would help if you could tell which version of Linux you are using (is it eg. Ubuntu?) and what graphiccard you have. Generally there are alot of support on how to get hardware accelerated 3D (ie. OpenGL) from the forums of the specific linux distribution you are using. The only general help i can give is to read the manual pages for the Xorg.conf file residing under /etc/X11/Xorg.conf and check on forums (sorry, this is not very helpfull i know). You know that it is working correctly when the program "glxinfo" says that "Direct rendering: yes".
Thanks for the reply, I should have told you my distro and video card.
I am using Xandros 4.0
and my video card is an ATI Radeon:
I see by the hardware prit out below that the driver isn't loaded either.
I am fairly competent with linux but still need help every now and then.
Such as what file do I edit so the driver will load?
Manufacturer: ATI Technologies Inc
Model: Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]
Description: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]
Driver loaded: No
Bus type: PCI/AGP/PCI Express
Thanks again Ray K
I'm unfortunatly not realy able to help you here. What you need to do is probably to install the binary properiatory ATI drivers, or to enable the OpenSource ATI drivers that exists in Xorg. To do the former, you can probably find lots of information on forums and would have to download a binary executable from ATI that then gets compiled against your kernel sources (do not fear, this is a fairly automated process assuming that you have the kernel sources from your operating system. Eg under ubuntu one should first install build-essentials and linux-sources). For the later, there will probably be some distribution specific way of enabling it graphically, or you "should" be able to edit the /etc/xorg/xorg.conf file suitable. However, you might need to browse some forums to find these settings.
