Hey,

I tryed to compile Descent 2(d2x-xl) on Linux.
but cannot run d2x-xl.
error message:
D2X-XL: Error: Could not set 640x480x32 opengl video mode

My linux runs 24bit-color X-window system.
I tryed to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf 24->32. but connot run X server.
I can run 24-bits color X sever. How do I run Decent 2?

Hi Warbird,

I don't know anything about Linux.

Best thing to do in regards to your question is to post it over at Diedel's D2X-XL forum. ;)
He'll more then likely ignore your post here.

Sorry.
