well this is an ugly to deactivate GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object (OpenGL only) 
extension support by game.

If you have correct graphics after that, you have find (another) ATI linux

You can send it to ATI guys (they will be happy) :)


PS: Nvidia drivers seems to have bug on vbo support too (but only on my
