Are you using desktop effects software? IE: compiz, compiz-fusion, beryl
EDIT: Better question, where did you get this program?

no, my hardware resources don permit me that.
I have 256 MB RAM out of which 32 MB is shared in S3 unichrome pro IGP
better answer: It was supplied as default with Fedora 7 but was 2D by name Board games> 3D chess game
I added few dependencies (python-opengl, python-? )
then selected the option view> 3D to have it in 3D

Hmm, my guess would be that your having issues since you are trying to run an opengl app on a very old video card.

IT is an Integrated graphics chip,
i bought it two years ago,
may be the technology is too old,
I think Linux supports older hardware much better?
anyways I have problems with glest also, so may be i will play them after many months from now when i upgrade my hardware till then i am happy what i am doing.

In general linux does support older hardware better then windows.
It sounds like you are just having issues with opengl in general, which doesn't really surprise me on such an old video chip.
If your hardware does what you want it to, then have fun with your system.
