Hi! When I'm trying to start the minecraft game application I get:


Bad video card drivers!
-----------------------
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

Minecraft is still in "Alpha" - so it's gonna be unstable.
I'd suggest checking the Development Status and Community links on this page: http://www.minecraft.net/
