There are problems running Quake2. WHat do I need to do?


Quake2 requires some minor setup to get it going.  First, in the Quake2

directory, the install creates a symlink called libGL.so that points

at libMesaGL.so.  This symlink should be removed or renamed.  Then,

to run Quake2 in OpenGL mode, you would type: 'quake2 +set vid_ref glx

+set gl_driver libGL.so'.  Quake2 does not seem to support any kind of

full-screen mode, but you can run your X server at whatever resolution

Quake2 runs at to emulate full-screen mode.
