The XQuartz team is assisting Apple with the modifications needed to get
X11 to function properly with MacOSX.  Apple's version is very broken,
for example the OpenGL functions only go to OpenGL 1.2 and most gaming
software needs functions from OpenGL 1.3.

I would review what is available on the XQuartz web page and if it
applies to Tiger BEFORE installing it.  From what I remember, it can be
installed on 10.4.11, but this may not be true any longer.
