    No idea... Nvidia has decent drivers, ATI has drivers, and I don't know about Sis.
    Try to Google it!

    Re: HOW TO: install Enemy Territory

    The process was fairly simple for me. I simply installed the restricted nvidia modules for my GFX card, Installed opengl, chmodded /dev/dsp to 777, installed et as root with default options, started artsd and then started et using 'artsdsp -m et'.

    only problem i have is a little bit of a performance hit from artsd and the occasional segfault (although i attribute the segfaults to buggy et linux coding).

    Hi

    If I mark a server as favourite is it supposed to stay as a favourite until I delete it??

    For me its gone if I restart ET.

    Thanks.

    I'm using an ATI Rage 128 PF/PRO. Anyone know how I can configure it properly? Or at least where I can read up on configuring video drivers. I believe the binary driver howtos don't apply to this model or...?

    Re: HOW TO: install Enemy Territory

    Fairly Newbish at this. Using Kubuntu 5.10 I have read all 13 pages of this thread.

    I got the NVIDIA drivers working and can play ET as user, but with no sound,

    this works
    Code:
    chmod 777 /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
    but only if I switch to root first. (Sudo doesn't seem to make a difference)
    but then I still have to be root to play with sound.

    What really chaps my hide is that the chmod doesn't stick. I have to redo it every bootup. I thought chmod would make it open for me to run as user, but no joy.

    I tried making a shell script with the above commands. (with sudo and with sudo -i) to run from user, but it doesn't seem to work.

    My only workaround right now is to logout as user. console login as root. startx. run the /proc fix, then run ET. I'm willing to do it to play, but is there an easier way?
    thanks pb

    edit:

    here's what I did that works:

    etsound.sh
    Code:
    sudo chmod 777 /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
    in my home/user folder

    then run
    Code:
    etsound.sh
    kdesu et
    in ternimal. It asks for password twice, but it works.

    I *do* have this problem though

    Oh, and to answer the inevitable question 'I try to start et using artsd and artsdsp and it says artsdsp is for binaries only'
    I first got this problem when upgrading to dapper, but it was easily fixed, I just had to add artsdsp in the et executable, eg:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    ## Location: /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/et
    
    ## Get into correct working directory
    cd "/usr/local/games/enemy-territory"
    
    ## Not sure what this does, exports the library path into a global scope maybe? *shrug*
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:.
    
    ## Start et with artsdsp -m
    exec artsdsp -m ./et.x86 "$@"
    Personally though, now that I use an XGL window manager and stuff, which screws up most opengl apps, plus a few other things. I execute et in a second X server with this script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    ## Location: /usr/local/bin/x.et
    
    ## Start another X server, pipe anything not returned by et to /dev/null (otherwise
    ## something presses enter until we kill the terminal we executed it from
    xinit /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/et $* -- :1 > /dev/null
    This script will start a SECOND X server for enemy territory, without a window manager or anything thus avoiding the XGL problem. The enemy territory executable remains as stated above. The second X server will be automatically terminated when et exits.

    Also, you *should* be able to access your first X server while playing with CTRL + ALT +F7 (and then switch back with CTRL + ALT +F8). Switching between X servers in this situation has varying outcomes, the worst being both X servers crash and you have to CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE.

    Occasionally I have a problem when I enter a game and any mouse movement is interperted as wild spinning of the mouse around a point. Weirdly enough, the menus are fine, it's just when you get up to the limbo menu and beyond that it's a problem.

    I've heard of varying levels of success with this procedure, but I doubt it will totally **** up your system

    Thanks to a few posters in various XGL and openGL related threads for their help. Don't be afraid to search the forums or even google.

    Re: HOW TO: install Enemy Territory

    My video isn't liking ET much right now. Any suggestions on how to fix this:



    My nvidia drivers are installed. Where else should I look?
    Using Xubuntu Dapper now. It didn't work on the KDE desktop either
    thanks
    pb

    Edit: Solved
    The legacy Nvidia drivers work, even though the GeForce4 is listed for the newer drivers.

    Re: HOW TO: install Enemy Territory

    This fixed my no sound in Enemy Territory. I use a Soundblaster Audigy and am running dapper. I also have an onboard sound card available. I tried everything posted here with no great luck so finally, I attacked ET, what I found was that mpost of my apps try to use "/dev/dsp" for sound.... ahaha !! My Audigy is attached to dsp1 so I pressed the tilde key to bring up the console in ET and then typed at the prompt
    snddevice "/dev/dsp1"
    and viola...upon restart of et I had sound. I hope this helps some people.

    PS:Sorry for english, I don't speak very well.
    try with this:

    next

    Code:
    sudo sh et-linux-2.60.x86.run
    write root password and all will be ok
