O.K thanks a lot man! I've already downloaded all 3 cd's and ill burn them and later on i will install them I have to check this out lol...but the only thing what i am looking for is playing my one and only game... quake III I have the orginal Windows version, and I've been always trying to get it to work under Linux, I got point2play, wine, Winex but none of them worked because SuSe didn't have a lot of stuff in it , hope here I'll get more lucky thanks a lot
I wish Dynebolic ran smooth as a kitten, but it doesn't. It's network finder can't find my ethernet card, so I can't do something as simple as get on the net using Firefox. Suse 9.1 however, has no problem finding the ethernet card. If you have any suggetions to remedy this problem with Dynebolic, I'd love to hear it.
This is an answer to myself, thanks to Dynebolic-lab.dyne.org, I found the answer to getting it to find my ethernet card. It's a Novell 2000 and the "lab" said Novell cards are a problem. It suggested running the following command in the X terminal "modprobe ne io=0x300 & pump". It found it and now I can agree, it runs smooth as a kitten. Hope this helps anyone else with this same problem.
