Geforce2 and Enemy Territory

For some reason, I don't remember enemy territory being forced to use the Mesa driver before.  Is this really necessary?  Doesn't sound right to me.  In fact, I can't see where Mesa is even mentioned in my Xorg.conf

The famous output (just the end of the text should be recognizable)

***********************************************************
 You are using software Mesa (no hardware acceleration)!   
 Driver DLL used: libGL.so.1
 If this is intentional, add
       "+set r_allowSoftwareGL 1"
 to the command line when starting the game.

Just in case, and if nothing else (maybe it's supposed to use Mesa?), any critique on my Xorg.conf file...???  The file is only hand-edited, I took out all the automatic monitor settings, and set the monitor up manually.  I also added Option  "RenderAccel" "true", which hasn't achieved anything.

I'm sorry if this is an easy answer.  I've put a few hours into trying to figure it out, but it wouldn't suprise me if there was a simple answer out there.  If there's any help of any kind, it would be very appreciated!
Thanks.   smile

Re: Geforce2 and Enemy Territory

$glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect

Okay, could this be because the nvidia-legacy package doesn't install nvidia-glx?  Is that even possible?  LOL.  I didn't pay much attention to the package.  If that's the case, guess I could always try manually installing the nvidia driver.  Just don't like doing that, 'cause I have to remember the right one, and it feels kinda messy.

Re: Geforce2 and Enemy Territory

Manual install of

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7174-pkg1.run

works.  Is it on purpose that glx is disabled in nvidia-legacy?  Probably a dumb question?
