Problems with new version

Hi. I'm totally new to the whole fold.it thing, but upon hearing that a Linux version had been released, I figured I'd give it a shot. However, I encounter an error when I run the program. Here it is:

darnold@dvus:$ ./Foldit
Foldit Error: The game has previously not started up correctly.
If this problem persists, please install the latest version.

xserver is chrashing?

Hi,

I tried Fold It with wine, but I can only play the puzzle levels upt to level 3. If level 4 is loading or a competition puzzle it looks like the xserver is crashing and I am at the login screen. I hoped that the linux version would fix it, but there I have the same problems.
It doesn't matter if compiz is enabled or not. I don't know why it is chrashing :/

I read some post in the forum. The people who are running windows have the same problems. Looks like a problem with the grafic card.

I have a Intel X3100/945GM inside of my notebook and I am running Ubuntu 8.04 64 bit.
