    Well, the menus and interface looks great.

    However, whenever I try to actually play the game segfaults with:
    “Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)”

    uname -a: Linux john 2.2.13-SMP #1 SMP Mon Nov 8 16:05:52 CET 1999 i686 unknown

    2x celeron 500, not overclocked
    192MB RAM
    Abit BP6 MoBo
    G400 video
    XFree86 3.3.6
    Mesa 3.0

    Tried using software mesa atm. (This is my main box and I don’t want to put XFree4.0 and UtahGLX on it until they’re more stable…)

    Any ideas?

    After some investigation it seems tha game need HW acceleration.
    So I put in SuSE’s g400 glx extension and BAM! Heavy-Gear II goodness…..
