I was going to file a bug for etqw - I use d-r-t kernel so assume all is 
there. So file if you want (mesa - drivers - gallium r600) and I'll add 
to it.

The game roughly works for me, but sections of the ground become 
corrupted as I move around.

I also get 1/2 second stalls occasionally.

It's the same for me on RV670 and RV790.
