I downloaded Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory and it is a .RUN file. Of course I'm a newbie to Linux and have no idea how to execute this file and install my game. i tried going to Run Program and then the file i dowlaoded but it open up Office.Org and all i see is a text file. What do i do to execute the .RUN file and get my game installed? Help Please
How do i do that. Set up my video card with 3d acceleration I'm a total newbie so please help me out while my Redhat 9 for dummies book is on its way from amazon. And so is my teach yourself linux book. Please help me so i can play my game.
no that wont help...you have to install the drivers from www.nvidia.com and run the shell script and install the drivers, there is a sticky thread in the newbie fourm on how to do this, or read the readme file as it will tell you the same more or less.
well i will just put it in the sense that yes ok redhat picks up your card but only installs a generic driver for your card which is not 3d capable...this driver used is "nv" as you will see in your /etc/X11/XF86Config file...in order to get 3d acceleration you have to download and install the nvidia drivers that they supply to be able to play 3d based games...
so with that said: heres the driver heres nvidias readme heres the step by step sticky thread in the LQ-newbie fourm
