i have had the white sity intro and menus before, a reboot (complete, not just log out) fixed that. looks like your drivers arnt happy with your card. is it set yo use OpenGl or Glide?
Theory is when you know everything and nothing works.
Practice is when things work, and no one knows why.
Here we combine theory and practice.
Nothing works and no one knows why.

Its a ATI card so its d3d or opengl i installed it for open gl. Since d3d aint an option. i tried changing my resolutions and colors but it keeps setting it back to 24 bit. I just need to figure out what the hell that Xlib glx thing is i think.

check it out bro, i had the same problem with my install of UT on RedHat
7.1, turned out it was because my video drivers werent installed right.
Here's what i did,
If your using RPM version of your driver, dont..that seems to screw things up, i ended up going to Nvidia's site (i have a tnt2 so this is gonna be a little different.)
If they have the tarball version of the driver then get that and follow the readme, do the install from a command line it will more than likely work better then if you're going to use the OpenGL driver make sure your Unrealtournament.ini has the
And if you have a S3 chipset card, or a TNT chipset card (which you dont, probably if its an ATI)
UseS3TC=1 (for s3 based cards)
UseTNT=1 (for TNT based cards)
and Whamo it worked for me.
now if i could just get sound working id be cool, also, theres a place in here to speed up mouse sensativity that you may wanna increase,
id tell ya but i forget and am actually looking for now.
Well dude, i hope this helps you in some way.
Ruin. PS if anyone reads this post, please post about sound
i have a FIC motherboard AZ11 with Via Chipset onboard sound, it works everywhere else but unreal (and windows, but thats to be expected from MS)
KDE (unsure of version, whatever the most recent version that comes with redhat since i just downloaded it a couple days ago.)

Sound seems to work everywhere else tho, thats the odd part.
i can play CD's the desktop themes sounds work, just not unreal, its probably a setting somewhere that im missing, usually is.
Ill post my ini file later tonight for y'all to pick apart and tell me what i did wrong again hehe
Later peep, enjoy the day
