Only works with XF 4.0 and is known to run Quake 3 and Unreal
Tournament. There are still some minor stability issues but people told
me that the visual quality is on pair with the Windows drivers. For
Quake 3 it is said that the performance is as good as the Windows

One issue people reported is that resolution changes didn't work with
Unreal Tournanement (using SDL).
