Hello Pierre,

I don't think it's a bug but probably a limitation of your OpenGL

Which graphic card/driver do you use and how much memory do you have on
Can you try: glxinfo -l|grep GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE

Maybe we should add a check in the wrapper.

if ! glxinfo | grep "direct rendering: No"; then
  zenity --error "missing direct rendering" --text "You're OpenGL installation doesn't support direct rendering. If you have an NVIDIA or an ATI card you'll probably need to install the propritary driver."

if [ "`glxinfo -l|grep GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE| sed 's/.*= //'`" -lt "$WARSOW_MIN_TEXTURE_SIZE" ]; then
  zenity --error "texture is too large" --text "You're graphic card doesn't doesn't have enough memory to launch Warsow."

This add two new dependency (mesa-utils and zenity) and we need to deal with i18n stuff.
