Castle Wolfenstein for Linux


Has anyone got this up an running yet? Downloaded the demo tonight and installed it with no problems. When I try to run it though, the screen flickers a few times and then nothing. I have tried adjusting the resolution and the color depth with no luck.

Running on a PIII 1 Ghz, 896 MB RAM, XFree 2.4.0 and kernel 2.4.17. No problems running Tuxracer though...........

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

1.) Geez, your lucky to have that much ram
2.) I know Quake3 doesn't like to run on XFree86 lower than 4 so that game will be no different since they both use the same engine.

go therion...

well, it's possibly down to your graphics card... what are you using? do you have OpenGL available to you? what error messages do you get? it works fine on my md81 2.4.17, well not fine... as i can never find a server to get into! looks good tho...

I played the RTCW demo for a while, then went out and got the full version. Runs great on my machine.
AMD Duron 800
Biostar mobo
384mb ram
32m Geforce 2mx 400 running at 800x600x24
RedHat 7.2
Latest NVDriver (had a few probs getting to install)

IMHO It plays better on linux then it does on win2k on the same machine. Just my opinon. I dual boot because of my wife, i need to teach her about linux

I think the only problem I had was with the nvidia drivers. Tried the rpm,no joy. Went to the source, no joy. Went back to the rpm and forced the install and it worked.

BTW, I dont have any updates or new kernel, everythings stock RH7.2 except for the video drivers.

You cant find any servers acid? theres hundreds of them out there, the one i like the most is "happy penguin" 64 players hardly any lag.

I've been playing the rtcw demo and quake 3 and UT all day with no problems thanks to the fix for the AMD agp bug. For people with nvidia cards and openGL problems you might still have some mesa libs hanging around especially after installing XFree86-4.2.0, download and run nv_check.sh (shift click) and remove any conflicting libs that it detects.

From the linux quake3/wolfenstein FAQ,
Quote:
Sys_Error: Couldn't load default.cfg / Sys_Error: FS_FreeFile( NULL )


If you get one of these errors after installing Quake III Arena or Return To Castle Wolfenstein, it means that the engine didn't find all the required .pk3 files. Either you didn't copy them, or you copied them to the wrong place. Check the INSTALL instructions for the game for more details, make sure they are in baseq3/ for quake3 (missionpack/ for TA files) and main/ for Return To Castle Wolfenstein.
