Running Quake 4 in Fedora Core 6

So I downloaded the .run file from ID's FTP server.

Then I copied the required files to the required directory.

Things look smooth but I am getting an error where the game will not start. It looks like I am missing some openGL extensions. There are two of them, I will post their names completely when I get home. I'm in my linux course right now.

Both of them start with GL_ARB_ and I believe one of them is GL_ARB_texture_compression.



This time I'll be a little more helpful, like leigh123 suggested.

I'm running an ATI Radeon X850XT, using the Radeon driver.

I have AIGLX working, with both compiz and beryl. I have a native version of Quake III that works, 3d rendering and all, just fine.

The output of glxinfo | grep rendering is:
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
Direct Rendering: Yes

I also get this message when I initialize beryl-manager and run Quake III, though everything still works. I installed the fglrx on a previous go at FC6, and the error message goes away, but then I can never get Beryl or Quake III to work.

When I get home today, at roughly 5:30 PST, I will post the outputs of my glxinfo and my xorg.conf file. Is there any other information I should post?

I take it you're running with the fglrx drivers, so you don't have AIGLX, but rather XGL (as the fglrx drivers do not have support for GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap). At any rate, have you tried to revet to normal desktop (no effects) and see if that works? That mode is strange, glxinfo should inform what does that mode refers to.

According to my glxinfo (nvidia driver), that mode refers to 24-bit visual depth, 32 buffers (32-bits), 8-bits per color+alpha (32-bit RGBA), apparently 8-bits stencil. The line looks like:
Code:
   visual  x  bf lv rg d st colorbuffer ax dp st accumbuffer  ms  cav
 id dep cl sp sz l  ci b ro  r  g  b  a bf th cl  r  g  b  a ns b eat
----------------------------------------------------------------------
...
0x4b 24 dc  0 32  0 r  y  .  8  8  8  8  4 24  8 16 16 16 16  0 0 None
Maybe something's messed up in your xorg.conf file?

I am using the Radeon drivers, with AIGLX.

I didn't have much time to work on it last night, I have my English final today.

When I use the FGLRX drivers, I can't get Beryl to work, and I have a hard time disabling Compiz, as the desktop-effects command goes missing. :-P

Maybe indeed the Radeon driver doesn't have support for that mode, then?

I was just wondering if anybody else had the same problem.

Missing openGL extensions with the Radeon driver.

There's got to be a fix.

Haven't you messed with any of the GLX and GL libraries by means of other drivers? It is known that installing some drivers will tinker the GL libraries, and that may be the problem. However I've seen the error of any given mode not being supported on other hardware as well, Intel 9xx chips and S3 Savage chips.

The radeon driver indeed lacks the GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc, S3TC is a patent encumbered technology and AFAIK it has not been merged into the DRI drivers, even though there are ways to add that to the driver. About the other extension, though... I'm not so sure about that. Cuold you please post all the reported GLX and GL extensions from glxinfo? I'm afraid, if they're not found, there's nothing you can do, but to run the fglrx driver.

Edit
I know it is no justification, but here's what I get (in my nVidia setup) with glxinfo | grep GL_ARB_texture:
Code:
glxinfo | grep GL_ARB_texture
    GL_ARB_texture_border_clamp, GL_ARB_texture_compression, 
    GL_ARB_texture_cube_map, GL_ARB_texture_env_add, 
    GL_ARB_texture_env_combine, GL_ARB_texture_env_dot3, 
    GL_ARB_texture_mirrored_repeat, GL_ARB_texture_rectangle,
There's no GL_ARB_texture_non_power_of_two there... However glxinfo | grep s3tc shows this:
Code:
glxinfo | grep s3tc
    GL_S3_s3tc, GL_EXT_texture_env_add, GL_EXT_abgr, GL_EXT_bgra, 
    GL_EXT_stencil_wrap, GL_EXT_texture3D, GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc

Now we are getting places.

I think that Non Power of Two isn't too much of a problem.

I will sacrifice Beryl to get quake 4 in linux. I am a little scared to do it, as I couldn't get Quake III to render right with XGL.

I feel like a jerk. Sorry for the double post. Here is what I get when I go to run Quake 4.

X..GL_ARB_texture_compression not found
signal caught: Segmentation fault
si_code 1

Then it says something like "Trying to exit gracefully"

Yup! It would seem that you either: Require to patch and build the DRI drivers so they have S3TC (if you still want to use the radeon driver) or you'll have to run with the fglrx driver (install from Livna, just check somewhere like the phoronix forums for xorg.conf settings). The fglrx drivers should give you a nice speed boost too (they're not known for speedyness, but they're faster for 3D than the DRI ones)

Quake IV requires that extension to be present and usable (i.e to actually do texture compression/decompression), otherwise it crashes.

Another question which may not have anything to do with the game or why it crashes, but may be beneficial for performance. Is your Radeon AGP or PCI-E? Because, if it is AGP, it's running at AGP 1x.

It is AGP. How do I fix that?

When you run the DRI drivers, you can change the the speed of AGP you are running by adding
Code:
Option "AGP" "8"
to the Section "Device", that should make the AGP run at 8x, however to make sure, just check about that particular option in man xorg.conf, I'm pretty sure that's the setting, but checking it up never hurts.
