I was just thinking, maybe I should make like a diary or something similiar with screenshots (photos in places) of setting it up to help other new people? Just wondering if such a thing would be useful...
I was thinking the same thing.

Just make sure the images are < 50kB (for people who have slow connections.)

You know, I'm starting to wonder why so many people don't use Linux, when there are so many people willing, ready and eager to help.

It's a pleasant and comforting thought knowing if I have a problem I can always come here. One day (in the near future I hope) I will be able to help others!

Ah as soon as I know more about Linux I will be helping others. Even if I come across a problem now that I might be able to help I will always post my comments

You should if you know something even similar to it. That relieves the persons tension and gives them a little more patience and hope. Always contribute anyway possible.

Can't agree more. And there is the fact that even if I suggest something wrong, someone else could see it and think "Ah! He's on the right track but what actually is happening/needs to be done is..."

If you get what I mean.

No doubt about it. I always find a way to get on here no matter what. Like at school, during work, or just at home.

I think that the team at transgaming is working on a fix, but I say, go Cedega, pay them $5 for 3 months, then cancel service (if you don't want updates, or being able to vote on what the team does next (I voted BF2 this round of votes). Maybe some wierd person with too much time on their hands made GTA SA work with Linux (WineX, Cedega, whatever), but I need photoographic (or screenshot) proof that GTA SA runs on Linux.
Ummm...that's not even close to right. First of all, WineX = Cedega. It's the same program. It used to be called WineX, now it's called Cedega.

And Cedega 4.3.2 runs GTA:SA just fine. I'm not going to pretend like it's flawless, but it installs perfectly and it's quite playable. It runs a bit slowly for my tastes, I've noticed some sound/video sync issues on the videos, and there are a few minor graphical glitches, but that's it.

I'll post screenshots when I get home.

Yes, Cedega runs GTA:SA fine. Although, the only problems I'm having running the game is with the sounds. Such as the engine sounds in cars and bikes not working and the water effects. Otherwise, it's a good play.

When i posted, it wasn't working, sorry. And since there was nothing on the website, i assumed that it wasn't working on linux yet. My friend couldn't get it to work either. But now it works. Also, I was saying it doesn't work on WineX because WineX, if you had winex, would be outdated.

Well I have finally got Fedora Core 4 onto my computer! Yay, I feel so... free!
I still can't believe Linux picked up everything (on-board sound etc.) on the install. Though I don't have the surround sound working as of yet.
However, I did get the nVidia drivers on without much of a problem (aside from reinstalling the whole of Fedora with development packages :P)

Well, basically, I am very confused about Wine/Cedega. I seemed to have completely botched any sort of install and now have no idea where I stand. I have Wine installed, I think through RPM, and got World Of Warcraft to install (the actual installer took forever to appear and scared the life out of me when it finally came up, I had my speakers on loud! ). Install went through fine though and it exists on my "fake windows" folder.
If I try to use Wine to play the game it says something like "err: VirtualFree: expect trouble" and then I get a segmentation fault (after the game tries to start, ie screen goes black then quits, leaving my resolution all screwn up...). This was after I followed these instruction for getting rid of the error=21 (http://digital-conquest.ath.cx/wiki/...nd_Exec-Shield) though I am aware World of Warcraft has severe problems running on Linux, though it must be possible because I am aware people can actually get in the game

Cedega... well, I tried to get it through CVS but the walkthrough posted earlier (http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/...p?articleid=45) -> 1) confused me, I don't know if I have/how to get the required packages and 2) Gave me an error near the end though I can't remember what it is... I think it's during the make part.
