Does anyone have TDM www.thedarkmod.com running on Gentoo?
I used the linux down loader and when I start it I hear the game sound but no game images or cursor.
I also tried it in a Win7 VM - in that I see the cursor except for a rectangler section at the bottom center.

Q: The renderviews are white/blank after starting up!

This frequently happens to nvidia users, caused by the "Threaded Optimization" setting in the nvidia control panel. To fix this, open the nvidia control panel, head to "3D Settings" and switch off the "Threaded Optimization" setting for DarkRadiant.exe. You don't need to switch it off for all your other games, a setting for the DarkRadiant.exe file should do the trick.
Is there a way to do that with the nouveau driver?

I read that to be about a problem when using the proprietary nVidia drivers, not a problem when using nVidia graphics cards. Are you seeing a problem with nouveau that has the same symptoms? If not, I would not worry about it. I doubt nouveau has the nVidia feature that this page tells you to disable.

Yes I'm seeing that as noted in my 1st post when I start the game from the dl/ed binaries. I hear the game but the screen is completely black without even the cursor.
