    Interesting, on my hardware (Pentium E2160@2,7GHz, 2 Go RAM, HD4850) I remember that ETQW worked on F16 but was too slow to be playable. With F17 that was much better, but the current upstream is for me the first "version" really playable. ETQW runs at 30~60 FPS in 1680*1050 (low details), without bugs or crash obviously (except with Linux 3.5).
    It does works for me with the latest Kernel and Mesa drivers available in the Fedora 16 repositories. Granted, I had to set r_useIndexBuffers to 1 in .etqwctl/base/etqwconfig.cfg to get everything running smoothly and I am playing the game at only 1280x720 (with default graphics settings). Not sure what FPS I am getting as I neglected to activate the FPS meter, but it is certainly playable.

    Here are my complete system specifications:
    Operating System: Fedora 16 Linux
    Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 4670
    Memory: 4 Gigabytes
    Processor: AMD Sempron CPU 2.7 Ghz
    Hard Drive: 2 TB Western Digital Caviar Green

    Still, now I am curious to if I will get any speed up when I upgrade to Fedora 18 in the fall.

      Don't forget to tell manually to ETQW how many VRAM you have, because it fails to detect automatically and set only 128 MB of VRAM.

      For sure! Believe me

        Already have that covered:

        /usr/local/games/etqw/etqw.x86 +set sys_videoRam 1024
