I was referring to games that require a local X server, which is pretty much all of the binary games, especially OpenGL-based ones. For anything non-OpenGL or source-based, the dependencies would be explicit on the libraries needed. Now, if any of you have some secret that allows games like Enemy Territory to display to a remote machine, I'd love to hear them. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering - Strategic Lead/QA Manager Games - Developer Gentoo Linux
