As freak42 said make sure your 3D card is working.

Check this guide here (note it's for 64-bit, just make the changes to fit your needs: http://gwos.org/doku.php/guides:64bit:wop

Thanks for the speedy replys guys, but indeed i know its not a graphics problem... maybe i just installed it wrong or didnt put in the patches right. what did you guys do for an installation process.... if you remember?

No problem.

If it doesn't still works,you can type wop in the terminal and see what's happening.

PlayDeb made a .deb (http://www.playdeb.net/updates/category/FPS#worldofpadman) of WoP. As I remember, it was unnecessarily difficult to install in the regular fashion.
