Checking that your card and software can render id Tech 3 (Quake III Arena engine)-based games. You must be using a card supported by the Radeon video driver.
How to test
- Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration (unless you need it for basic X operation to suceed)
- Ensure that
glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL renderer'does not return:
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
- Install the openarena package:
yum -y install openarena
- Launch openarena from a terminal.
- Edit the game settings (Esc => Setup => System): Video mode, texture details, and geometric details, according to your video card's performance. You might want to start with low settings.
- Launch a single player arena (WRACKDM17 has many weapons) and play for a while. Please remember, you do not need to win to complete this test case successfully.
- Use all the weapons in the game, especially the rocket launcher: it generates reflections on surfaces. If you see distinctly polygons instead of smooth surfaces, this is a rendering bug.
- Quit openarena.
- no crash.
- no obvious misrendering (flickering, transparent walls, polygons instead of surfaces...)
