So what game are you going to play first when Steam comes to Linux?

Posted 06-08-2012 at 09:52 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)


With all the brouhaha from Phoronix lately about Steam coming to Linux, if and when it does happen, what (Steam) game are you going to play first? Of course, this is assuming there'll be more than 1 game on steam that will be available to be played on Linux come launch.

Well, I am hoping that Valve will allow Doom 3 to be under Steamplay when it concerns the Linux version (although, it may not happen since Steam users didn't get the ability to play the Mac...

Triple Boot goal: OS X, Gentoo Linux, and Windows 7

Posted 05-16-2010 at 09:26 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I am intending to install Linux on this Mac Mini of mine.

Well, actually it's installed. So it's already coinciding with OS X and Windows nicely.


90 or so GB for OSX
23GB for Linux
40GB for Windows

Not a lot of options for a 160GB drive anymore. I might purchase a bigger hard drive later, of course I will also need the proper tools to open the mac up. I saw how it is done.

One of the problems I ran...

Portal, Steam and OS X: A Mini Review

Posted 05-12-2010 at 10:13 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

System Setup
Mac Mini
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26 GHZ
2GB of Ram (256MB of which is shared with the graphics Device)
GeForce 9400M
Snow Leopard (updated to 10.6.3)

I am going to get this out of the way first. Yes, the game doesn't perform as well as I would have liked. But that's mostly the fault of the system I chose (9400M is not the greatest GPU out there). And some of the fault, at least according to what I read...

RE: Steam: Possible Linux Client in the future? Continued

Posted 05-12-2010 at 04:51 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

Steam for OS X has arrived (with Portal being the only Source game available atm). And still no official word from Valve concerning a possible Linux port of Steam and Source.

However, that does not stop phoronix and other online news sites from reporting that Valve has confirmed a Linux client (without a source).

Whatever happened to proper journalism? Where they...

Installing Audacious Media Player in OSX?

Posted 04-26-2010 at 09:28 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I'm getting a Mac soon, and I realize that I need a music player software for it.

Is it possible to install Audacious Media Player in OSX (Snow Leopard)? What apps would I need to install before installing it?

I don't mind compiling it if that is what I need to do.

Thank you in advance,
