I'm guessing it's the 'GLX' which is causing trouble rather than 'GL'.  XFree86.dsl provides openGL, which in many cases is suitable for 3D rendering.  However, most games recommend glx on top of that, and apparently Briquolo requires least the way this one was built.  In any case, 3D gaming is always going to be much better if you have drivers installed which allow the graphics hardware to do most of the rendering work.  Software rendering, at least with more recent graphics cards, is always much slower.

This is true.

But you may also own a newer computer with a big CPU and an unsupported 3D chipset.

In this situation, you may be able to get away with using XVesa and then use software rendering from your Pentium 4 or Athlon CPU.
