this reminds me of my problems with MIT-SHM... but it says something
like "Bad drawable" or "Attempt to access private resources denied".
However, I just can't get MIT-SHM to work :( I tried to compile mpeg2play
(v1.1b), but with shared mem enabled, the program failed to run. I had to
disable shared mem. Again, I fetched the xquake binaries for the alpha,
and again I came across this problem. Now what's the deal? Is Redhat 4.0
broken? How can I make xquake to run?
