Question quake 4 won't run in FC4

I've just downloaded the Quake 4 demo for GNU/Linux and successfully installed it. However when I try to run it, I get this error message:

--------------- R_InitOpenGL ----------------
Initializing SDL subsystem
Loading GL driver 'libGL.so.1' through SDL
TODO: Sys_SetClipboardData
********************
ERROR: SDL_SetVideoMode failed: Couldn't find matching GLX visual
********************
--------------- BSE Shutdown ----------------
---------------------------------------------
WARNING: rvServerScanGUI:lear() - invalid scanGUI

idRenderSystem::Shutdown()
Sys_Error: SDL_SetVideoMode failed: Couldn't find matching GLX visual

What does this mean? How do I solve this?

What's your depth? 24 or 16 ? if 16 you need to change it in your xorg.conf to 24.

Hi, I installed Quake4 yesterday and had the same sound problems. I did a search for quake4 sound problems and found this post that told me to add this to the quake4 command, +set s_driver oss

Worked for me, hope this helps

Chris
