I can't find a host name for wiki.x-plane.org so I'll have to go for the
most obvious stuff.

First, run the following from a terminal:

glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"

It should say yes.

Next, does glxgears run?

I don't really know where to go if both of those are right but the
installer doesn't work.
