Ah...see here's the thing... this application doesn't actually tell
you anything...its just fails silently. You only see the error if you
run it from a terminal.

But since its already in the gnome-games-extra package, (apologizes
for mis remembering that), its not as big a deal for me.  if we can
get it to fail less silently and tell the user they need accelerated
hardware to run the game then that would prevent some amount of
unneeded head scratching.
