     As someone who is always looking to tweak my system for optimum 
performance I found what you said interesting. But I don't quite 
understand what you mean by "Rename the 
/where/you/installed/ut2004/System/libSDL-1.2.so.0 file". What should it 
be renamed to? Do I just do something like
     'ln -s /usr/local/games/ut2004/System/libSDL-1.2.so.0 
/usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.o.o.5' ?
    Also, why does this increase performance?
