I've got a TNT2 here, rpm'ng install the drivers and the opengl thing
fine if of course you remember to run 'ldconfig' after installing.
The opengl stuff was really for the TNT2, so donno it it'll work
with the older tnt.

Yes, it can do that (+set r_glDiver <path to driver>)
or it'll get it from the ld path. Mine works fine with q3 1.07|1.08
Still wanting 1.09 to appear.
