Sear freezes whenever I move the mouse!

By default Sear tries to determine what is under the cursor everytime it moves. This can severly hit performance only older hardware. To disable it set mouse_move_select to false. This can be done by editing the general config file, or on more recent versions of Sear, type into the console,
/setat mouse_move_select false
/read_config

This is now disabled by default.

I've started Sear but all I have is a blank white screen.

Either you havn't downloaded the media or you have not installed it correctly. See the downloads page for where to get the media.

I see the Sear logo for some or all of the textures!

If all the textures are of the Sear logo, then either you haven't downloaded the media or you have not installed it correctly. See the downloads page for where to get the media. If only some textures are of the Sear logo then you need to setup Sear to use a texture for that particular item. See developers manual on how to do this.
