  1. ClarkConnect might do it, but I am not sure how easy it is. I'd vote for Debian, as it's very stable and easy to keep up to date, and it's what I run, but it's not n00b friendly.
  2. I didn't notice until just now, but alpha 2 is out ( and it has support for arena mode. I'm gonna try it out soon. If you guys use this, add me to your contact list! My tag is dolson.
  3. I just add in the mouse cursor after the fact in Gimp.
  4. If you want to help code stuff for Linux, you could join in on any of the existing games, and there are tons at icculus.org as well as sourceforge.net that need good coders.
  5. http://www.macologist.org/viewtopic.php?p=...686e2921b4a6a76
  6. Do you know that you don't need to pipe catted output into grep? grep "model name" /proc/cpuinfo grep "cpu MHz" /proc/cpuinfo grep "bogomips" /proc/cpuinfo grep "cache size" /proc/cpuinfo and grep "MemTotal" /proc/meminfo grep "MemFree" /proc/meminfo grep "SwapTotal" /proc/meminfo grep "SwapFree" /proc/meminfo Both work. :)
  7. I'm not sure it could be related to the driver, since the same game works just fine in WineX. Yes, I still call it WineX. SoulSe, I'm not that familiar with the game, but does it use Direct3D or OpenGL in Windows/WineX? Also, could you test them both out with the sound disabled? It could be the something relating to sound support built into the Linux client.
  8. I'll go with what's recommended for sure, so a Linksys B or G router. I'll see if I can find Siemens card too. Thanks guys. Anyone else have recommendations?
  9. If you haven't reported this as a bug already, maybe you should... The dude who ported the game is in #icculus.org on freenode somethimes.
  10. A router isn't exactly a laptop, but ok. So no one knows?
  11. Hello, I need to get a wireless router and a PCMCIA card for my Debian laptop, as well as a wireless adaptor for my Xbox. What hardware do you recommend that isn't too expensive and will suffice for these needs? I don't run Windows at all, so it has to be fully Linux-compatible. Don't worry so much about the Xbox if you've never networked an Xbox before. I'm on a tight budget, and I'm in Canada, so if you know a good online store, let me know! Thanks in advance.

  12. Let me know how it goes. It sure felt smoother to me, and I don't think it's a placebo effect... Try out UT2K3/UT2K4 too, if you have them.
  13. The XMMS/BMP issues are caused by the ck patches, which are included as a part of the nitro patches. I haven't found a solution yet, but gaming improves a lot using these patches.
  14. If you're into compiling kernels, I recommend you grab the nitro patchset from http://www.sepi.be/nitro.php and patch a kernel with them. Seriously, I had doubts that this could help much, but I can now actually play the Doom 3 demo and I'm told that UT2004 plays smoothly as well. And I don't have very advanced hardware, and Doom 3 was very very choppy before I patched with this. You do need to know what you're doing as far as kernels go, but it's really quite worth it. This was a patch that came out of the Gentoo community I believe, but I'm running it on Debian just fine (only one small issue with XMMS sometimes skipping, but I'm just using RhythmBox until I resolve it).
  15. I hope they contribute it back to upstream... Anything to make Gnome better is welcome, and if they have to fork it (that GoneMe thing perhaps) then I may have to reevaluate... Anyhow, yeah, just make a .hidden file on your desktop, then put in it all the names of the icons you wanna hide. That should do it.

    Ah yes, I didn't read it until now, but I see it's just the engine, and other games are based on it. BOS looks the best so far.
  17. Depends on who you're playing with. It works better playing across town than across the globe. The site has a list of supported games and mentions if they support the headset, and also how the traffic usage is, as it does vary between games.

    What about that game that came out of the ashes of FreeCraft?

    That's too bad because Kohan isn't free. Also, Majesty isn't exactly like C&C but it's still really great.
  20. Because it's an annoying site. I do use it though. It's just much harder to find something nice there, despite a larger choice.
  21. That device could be your TV card, since you have nothing else, I'm sure ti is. You could post the output of your lsmod and dmesg to us, and we could help more with it. I hate it when distros decide to put things in places where I don't want them. It's not handy, and it's not clever. Especially when the icon name is frickin' long like that. Did you try using a .hidden file to try hiding it? I don't know if it works if you're using the standard ~/Desktop as your desktop folder, but I am using ~ as my desktop, and I can edit my ~/.hidden file to remove things like public_html, tmp, and such. Works great. I have no clue if it would work on those dynamic icons forced on you by Mandrake.
