Just installed Max Payne 2 on Mandrake 10 (2.6.5 kernel). Install was pretty easy. This game is rated 4/5 for compatability at Transgaming - one irritation I found was the sound is choppy if you want to view the 'previously on Max Payne' story before the game starts otherwise it seems fine (didn't play for too long - about 30 mins maybe). I used Point to Play 1.1.2 with Winex 3.2.2-1
I also wonder if native Linux games like Quake, Unreal, or Neverwinter Nights run well on such distros.
Anyone can comment on this?
I have NWN running natively however there does seem to be a problem with 2.6.x kernels and Reiserfs (see here
). using the suggested fix NWN now loads very quickly again but UT2004 still loads very slowly (map changes are slow too - I'm sure this wasn't a problem with UT2003 on a 2.4.x kernel). I think I'll just have to get round to reformating my /home partition to ext3 maybe
