    Linux anyone?

    I have the full version of UT2k4 and was wondering if I could install it on Xandros Linux and have it run natively (without any other programs like WINE).

    It should install flawlessly.

      Linux anyone?
      Yes Please

      Just make sure to mount it yourself instead of the systems automount. Automount doesn't seem to work with the linux installer.

          1. mount the 1st cd or dvd to /media/cd or /media/dvd
          2. type: sh /media/cd/install.sh or sh /media/dvd/install.sh

          The installer name might be different I don't remember the exact filename.

              Thanks guys, I got it to install, but now it's really laggy. Even the menues are laggy when they first come out (scroll from right side) on the load screen. Any idea on how to correct this issue?

                Do you have a Nvidia video card? If so upgrade your drivers here...http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7174.html

                I have no clue if its a ATI card...

                  If it's an ATI card, it's a Whole Different Story. You can follow the instructions for the ATI drivers all you want, but it comes down to whether or not the planets were aligned with the refresh rate of your display, and if that chicken you sacrificed to the ATI+Linux Gh0dz was thinking the right thoughts before it cacked. Or something..

                    What distro of Linux are you using? That should help us out a lot.

                      He said Xandros.

                          Having used Mandrake Redhat, Lindows, and Xandros, I've got to say that for a Windows user, there's no comparison, Xandros is the way to go.

                          Unfortunately, I have an ATI card, so that's one strike against it, and ACDSee 7 doesn't run under it and since I have over 6,000 images cataloged under it, that's strikes 2 and 3. It's out.

                            I think it's similiar to the nVIDIA driver. All you have to do is compile it and edit your X config file. I've never messed with Xandros before, but it looks really great. Any distro that defaults to KDE is :up:
