GLX_SGI_swap_control is almost equivalent, it just doesn't have a query
function. It's probably not critical functionality though.

Sounds like WGL_ARB_render_texture. No GLX equivalent yet. It's possible
to fall back to ordinary glCopyTexImage stuff, which I suspect the game
should be smart enough to do if it can't find these.

nvidia just doesn't seem to support this on the cards we have here
either. They just have GL_NV_texture_rectangle. The game could probably
fall back to this too if ARB_texture_non_power_of_two doesn't exist.

Or perhaps where pbuffers are used.

And since the original poster said:

here's a howto from someone who did make it start with Cedega CVS:

Since there's some level of pbuffer support in Cedega, it might provide
better graphics.
