Slackware and Faster than Light


Hello,

I run Slackware-current with multi-lib. I got the most recent issue of Linux Format and saw a really cool game I would like to try, Faster than light. Before I pony up the 10 bucks to buy it, I want to know if any other slackers have had any luck with installing it, and if there's any tips you could give me if I do attempt it.

Thanks,
-RF

The Humble Store version works just fine on my 64-bit no-multilib setup.

The Steam version is cheaper, but 32-bit only.

Thanks, I got it downloaded and it works great. I recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi. I got the humble store version as well.
