I just installed AA for linux, but When i load the game, the aa symbol appears for a few seconds, dissapears, and then nothing happens. The game doesn't load. I don't know what the problem is or how to fix it, so if you could tell me, it would be appreciated.
The error message im getting is:
Couldn't set video mode, Can't find GlX matching visual.
It is probably your ram but before u go out spending lots of money on that... try reinstalling the game.
Try re-downlaoding it! If problem persists, try re-downloading off another site. If the problem stays, then i'm sorry, but it has to do with ur PC! :)
Most likely your CPU or ram because i m guessing that the game just shuts down... try hitting ctrl-alt-delete when u start the game to c if the game freezes or just shuts down. Also check the system info window in the americas army fold, although there are some technical issues now with it u can see if your system is up to date with the requirements for the game.
I meet all of the minimum system requirements. I downloaded the file from a different location and reinstalled it, but i am still getting the same error (couldn't set video mode, cant find matching glx visual). I also noticed that just after the files uncompress, It says there is an error with gtk, but is does install. All the help is appreciated.
Come on people, I still need help here. I would really like to play AA:0 on my linux machine, but I need help figuring out my problem, thanks.
i dont think that error has anything to do with RAM or a bad install, it probably has to do with vid card or the drivers, I got an Nvidia gf2 but I have 1024MB of RAM and a P4 3.06Ghz procs. I'm looking into it. If i find somethin i'll post here. one thing about being a linux user is to be more resourceful and not ask people to hold your hand otherwise just stay with windoze.

Well, I do have a Nvidia GF2 also, and the game did work on Windows. I think it has something to do with the drivers, also.
Martywolf: I had the same error, I got it working now. What distro and version are you running? mines drake 9.1 and it recognized my video card off the install but the default drivers are no good. Goto www.nvidia.com and download the latest 1.0-4363 run file. Once dowloaded you'll have exit X-server to run the install tho. Basically reboot to a shell prompt and you should be good to go.
