 Rendering problems on Slackware 12 with Intel i945G

Hello there Smile

1. I used to play on Slackware 11, everything works fine.

2. I have two identical pc's (Asus Pundit P1H1), both with i945G

3. On the machine with Slackware 11 AA works fine, but on the machine with Slackware 12 i have real rendering problems. It's hard to describe, because of my english;-) i can make a screenshot if its needed. For example on Urban Assault everything seems to look fine, but on the Bridge (Bridge Crossing) it's quite unplayable.

On Slackware 12 / Ubuntu 7.10

  • there is no fog on the bridge
  • some parts of the map are not rendered or "distorted" ...

I'm trying to solve this problem. The main difference between Slackware 11 and 12 is gcc. 3.x -> 4.x. I will test this on a Nvidia card, but now i can't do this, because there's no free AGP slot, so this has to wait.

Other differences:

  • Slackware 11 (working): OpenGL version string: 1.2 Mesa 6.4.1
  • Ubuntu 7.10 (rendering problems): OpenGL version string: 1.3 Mesa 7.0.1

(Now I'm writing from Ubuntu, so after a restart i will post here what `OpenGL version string` is on Slackware 12)

What I see each time when i'm running AA on Slackware 12 or Ubuntu 7.10 is the message (i'm starting from a console):


Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".

I found on the forum, that "this is not a problem" - but on Slackware 11 there is no message like this and everything works fine... So maybe this message is a problem?

The same thing as on Slackware 12 happens on a fresh Ubuntu 7.10. Same rendering problems on Ubuntu 7.10 as on Slackware 12. Ofcourse everything on the same hardware.

TIA for any comments

ips for a Debian GNU/Linux System Administrator. ... is running rather slow on the work (and it is P4 2.4 GHz with 1 GB RAM and i945G chipset -- this is NOT slow ..
