We'll need more details, I'm afraid. The exact OS version, graphics card, drivers, settings, and crash log. Please use a different fork such as GAE (also found on this forum) as it provides more advanced bug reporting, and besides, the original Glest is no longer updated. Also, be sure your graphics driver is up-to-date.

Yes, we need more details. Perhaps you should try Megaglest for some nice stable multiplayer or GAE for its cool features, because Glest is no longer in development and it's outdated. Good Luck.

no longer in development I can not believe I'm so sorry I was and hoped that this game will peak but still has at least one sequel:)
I do not know exactly which is the exact OS version fedora 13 Godart something: (
The kernel is 2.6.37.2
Graphics by NVIDIA 8800GT and I installed the drivers from nvidia site. Run a version 260.19.36 is the last version
I'm not sure which settings you need, from games, graphics, fedora:)
I found a log to / home / user / .glest / glest.log is it that
But even this old version is not bad ... I like it
Thankas for info now i try the new version of game :)

edit :
What are the greatest differences between these two versions Megaglest more stable and is suitable for multiplajer game and this one for a game singlplayer

I don't think that's the right log...but anyways a good chart can be found here about the differences of MG and GAE. I suggest you to try both though...Yes, Megaglest is more suitable for multiplayer with some other nice features, while GAE has a tons of other cool features; but it has problems with multiplayer...but they are actually going to be merged later.

Sorry ...

Ah, now that's exactly what we need. This means your graphics card cannot handle shadow mapping, a method of transmitting shadows, but requires an OpenGL extension. Instead, please try either "projected" or "none". This is changed in the Glest INI ("glest.ini") found in the installation directory. Change the line that reads:
Code: [Select]
Shadows=<...>To either:
Code: [Select]
Shadows=Projectedor
Code: [Select]
Shadows=None
