Team Fortress 2 OpenGL problem

I recently downloaded team fortress 2 from steam and when i was about to open it it crashed with this error:

"could not find required OpenGL entry point "glColorMaskIndexedEXT"! Either your video card is unsupported or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated"

I searched everywhere and the only thing I found was about nvidia cards or even older ati cards. I'm using radeon X800GTO.

Please help I really want to play this game and not on Windows!

Edit:
found out how to launch it from the command line, here's the output:

SDL video target is 'x11'
SDL video target is 'x11'
This system supports the OpenGL extension GL_EXT_framebuffer_object.
This system supports the OpenGL extension GL_EXT_framebuffer_blit.

This system DOES NOT support the OpenGL extension GL_NV_fence.
This system supports the OpenGL extension GL_ARB_sync.
This system DOES NOT support the OpenGL extension GL_EXT_draw_buffers2.
Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glColorMaskIndexedEXT'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.

Re: Team Fortress 2 OpenGL problem

What video driver are you using?

If you are using the open source go to the proprietary and try it, if proprietary try opensource.

Re: Team Fortress 2 OpenGL problem

Your card is waaaaay too old to support what's necessary to run these games. Waaaaaaaaaay.

Re: Team Fortress 2 OpenGL problem

No driver will help here, the hardware isn't capable. It supports opengl 2 only. TF2 requires opengl 3

That is not helping. His only choice is the open-source driver, because the card is too old. Also as Gusar said: His card isn't capable to run TF2 in Linux.

Not with your hardware. You need at least a HD 2xxx card. Because of OpenGL 3.x.
