Default quake 2doesn't want open GL !

Hi,

I'm on debian woody, kernel 2.4.20 with geforce 2 MX and lastest Nvidia proprietary drivers.
It works fine ! (glxgears give me 850 fps and I play tuxracer or the quake-like "Cube" without problem in OpenGL in 11152x864)

But when I start Quake 2 , it starts normal and when I choose, in video option, SDL open GL, it stops and I have :

Quote:

Same problem with GLX (with ref_glx.so instead of ref_sdlgl.so )

Anyone can help me please ?

First of all are you running the lastest version of Q2?? (I believe it's 3.20) If so you will have to run the Q2 script by also adding the GLX driver options (Should be outlined in the README file that came with Q2).

You may also need to remove the sym links to the GL library.
(These will be located somewhere in the /usr/local/games/quake2 directory)

I will have to check the exact proceedure on my other system, as this is all from memory.

Also add the parameter -nocd to the Q2 command line.. (Noticed the CD error in your message.)

I'm under Debian and I download the debian package ! Quake2 is 3.21

But my game directory is in /usr/lib/games/quake2 , not /usr/local/games

I try to make a link to quake2 in /usr/local/games, but nothing happens !

My version is V3.20, and it was installed in the /usr/local/games/quake2 directory...

You could try running it as follows:

./quake2 +set vid_ref gl +set gl_driver libgl.so

As I mentioned earlier this was from memory. I need to fire up my other system which has it installed and running to give you more details. (I have Q2 and both the addons running without problems. Using the Nvidia drivers)

------- Loading ref_gl.so -------
LoadLibrary("ref_gl.so") failed: No such file or directory

and if I try the same command with sdlgl instead of gl, it says :

------- Loading ref_sdlgl.so -------
LoadLibrary("./ref_sdlgl.so")
ref_gl version: GL 0.01
./sdlgl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ref_gl::R_Init() - could not load "sdlgl.so"


The directory is :

Forgive me for this being off topic, but where can one get the Linux Quake 2 client? I saw servers galore, but not a client.

I don't know... In debian, simply apt-get install quake2 will download the engine and then, if, like me, you don't have the CD, download the shareware datas....

No debian here, sorry. I have the Quake 2 CD, but I lost my Linux client...
