I don't think it's "too much work", I think it's more of a patent issue than that. S3 has the texture format patented, and M$ can pay for a license to use it in D3D. But who's going to pay for a license for an opensource GL library? Add to that that some people don't want patented stuff in open source libraries and such, and it's fairly possible that DRI may not do that.

If someone wanted to write an S3TC-"enabled" wrapper around libGL (like what r0gu3 is talking about), they'd either have to pay a license fee to S3, or tell everyone they give it to that it's illegal. Because it will be.

Assuming it is actually patented... but if it isn't, then... why would anyone care?

How to get it to work on a GeForce 2 MX? You say you need at least a GeForce, I have a Geforce 2 and I get that same error. glxgears works so I think it isn't my driver (probably?) but I get that same error about DXTC/S3TC.

Well check glxinfo and see if the vendor is nvidia Corp...

If its not, and you see mesa ANYWHERE than you don't have the drivers installed properly

I had the game running fine on my gf2 mx

This would, I think, be your problem.

Post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log and whatever file that log says X is using as its config file (usually /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, but not always -- it's one of the first ten lines or so in the log).

Here is the log and the config file.

Quake3 and Wolfenstein seem snapping enough that I though the drivers were working.

How about ldd $(which glxinfo) -- it will print which libraries your glxinfo binary is linking against, and where it's finding them. It should list libGL.so.1 and libGLcore.so.1, and these files should be living in /usr/lib. Just to make sure you don't have stale symlinks laying around, ls -l both of them and make sure they're pointing to libGL.so.1.0.3123 and libGLcore.so.1.0.3123, respectively.

Sometimes you can also fix problems like this by doing an ldconfig as root.

Thanks for the tip, I got it working now.
I re-ran the install make in the GLX directory to fix things up.

I think a apt-get upgrade bit me, but I am not sure.
