This test checks that your card and software can render extremeTuxRacer. You must be using a card supported by the radeon video driver.


  1. Ensure the nomodeset and radeon.modeset=0 kernel parameters are not set in your bootloader configuration
    • You can see your current kernel options by running cat /proc/cmdline
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the radeon driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. If using a live image to test, ignore the above steps and simply boot the system from the live image with default options
  5. Ensure that glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL renderer' does not return OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer or llvmpipe
  6. Install the Package-x-generic-16.pngextremetuxracer package with the command su -c 'yum install extremetuxracer'

How to test

  1. Launch etracer from a terminal
  2. Edit the game settings (Configuration => {Video, Graphics})
  3. Launch a practice session (Ski Jump is short, Path of Daggers entertaining). Look closely at the screen
  4. Quit extremetuxracer

Expected Results

  1. The game should not crash
  2. There should be no obvious misrendering (flickering is the most likely problem in this game)
