Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

darn...that will be 40GB just for my /home stuff -_-;;;;
isn't there another way to get the game work?
and if there isn't I have no choice but to delete the game and try it sometime else (FC4 maby...) I don't want to spend half a week burning information on CDs

The fix is quite simple. I play AOE2 on Mandrake every day, it's a bit slow but that's cuz of my PC. Jusy run wine empires2.exe -- -opengl. It should work. Same for cedega. cedega empires2.exe -- -opengl.
I use the May build of Wine. And I play just plain AOE2.
Actually it's weird, I have gotten the game to work on Wine before. Though the text looks all fuzzy and the game is a little slow actually. Maybe get a Cedega CVS build and try running the game with that?
I love the game, and I would love to get it working back again on linux! Im using Fedora Core 4 now, the Wine version is 20050524. Age2_x1.exe runs, but only for the main screen. The font colors arent properly shown, the game settings interface are coming up even worse.... When I hit the Start game button, the game goes back to the terminal....
A shame it doesnt work, I was positively shocked the game runs already that far!
Is there anybody who has found the correct setup for the game so far?
