Intel graphics users
You may find that this game is unplayably slow if you're running it on a computer with Intel graphics hardware, e.g. 945GMA and 945GSE. The cause appears to be that the graphics driver switches into software mode due to some requirement which Mesa 7.0 does not know can be hardware-accelerated.
Installing newer Mesa libraries ‒ version 7.2-1 of libgl1-mesa-dri and libgl1-mesa-glx, both from experimental (correct as of 2008-11-20) ‒ appears to be sufficient to allow the game to make sufficient use of the hardware acceleration to be adequately playable.
(Note: tested by dsalt with custom 2.6.27 kernels.)
