When starting the game Uneal Tournament (ut 4.25)
I get a comlete black screen in full screen mode or a black window in windowed mode. But the game seems to run ok, I hear sound and can contorl the program with the keyboard .

The OpenGL demos from Mesa are running without problems.

Is this a problem with the unknown VIA chipset for kernel 2.2.16?

    Some corrections (sorry):
    + OpenGL demos do NOT work - same black screen
    + when setting nohw=1 they work, but painfully slow

    Seems to be a problem with utah-glx
