The X error you sent seemed to be a permissions error to '/dev/mem', an error I'm not used to seeing. I don't think /dev/mem should be world readable. It seems that X must be suid root to read this.

I don't currently run Quake client, but the module you need for X is 'GLX' or 'DRI'. These modules enable OpenGL, which is needed to run the client. Perhaps someone running client can comment. Your video card must support OpenGL for this to work.

You must be sure that you are running linux emulation version 'base 7', not 'base 6'. The older version has antique libraries, and will cause Quake3Arena server or add-on modules to fail.

I do not install the server from the ports collection. I use a quake3 install CD and the latest linux point release.

Hope this is helpful,
