Question SDL Parachute error

(message x-posted to

Okay, I'm sure you've all seen this kind of message before, but I've searched and searched...

I'm building a system for someone. They have an MSI KT4AV-L, an Asylum GeForce MX 4000, Athlon XP 2600+, 512 MB RAM, Fedora Core 2 (retrieved from I downloaded and installed the latest nVidia driver for the GeForce as per the instructions found at I DID remove the Mesa libGL library:
rpm -e --nodeps xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL
Some games work flawlessly. However, if I try to run Tux Racer, for example, I get this: Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

Note: This never happened until I installed the latest and "greatest" nVidia driver.

Also, after I installed the new nvidia driver, I lost sound. I had sound beforehand, but now there's no sound. Why would a graphics card driver affect the soundcard (built in with the Hyperion 4 in 1 onboard audio)?

Am I needing to update something else?
