rachel@rachel-desktop:/usr/lib$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL

OpenGL renderer string: GeForce3/AGP/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.5.8 NVIDIA 96.43.05
OpenGL extensions:

Does this mean I won't be able to get full shaders? It's still prettier than 1.65, but I'd love to be able to get all those lovely lighting effects.

Hope this kind of thread necromancy is okay here. :oops:
I'm fairly certain your GF3 doesn't support shaders under Oolite (OpenGL v2+ - and you're Nvidia driver is v1.5) - Ahruman's new tweaks going into the trunk will mean you will get some lighting effects even in the basic non-shader version of the game - but things like decals and engine glows - nope - you're not going to see them.

Go to this thread: and follow the instructions there and post your results - this way Ahruman can find it more easily than here
