Getting bzflag to play on Voodoo3 3000 tdfx card - libglide3

I installed the tank game bzflag today.

When I would go to run it, I would see the following error:
robert@pip:~$ bzflag
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  159 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Serial number of failed request:  26
  Current serial number in output stream:  27

Did some research via google, and discovered that my Debian Stable, running tdfx with a voodoo 3 3000 (16Mb RAM) card, needed a library for 3dfx cards: libglide3.

Then did this command:
robert@pip:~$ sudo aptitude install libglide3

...ran bzflag again, to successful results.
