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...

Configuring GRUB2?

Posted 12-08-2009 at 12:59 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I tried following the grub2 article at the gentoo wiki with no success on this issue.

it says to:
if loadfont /boot/grub/unifont.pf2 ; then
set gfxmode="1280x1024x32;1024x768x32;800x600x32;640x480x32;1280x1024;1024x768;800x600;640x480"
insmod gfxterm
insmod vbe
terminal_output gfxterm
if terminal_output gfxterm; then true ; else
terminal gfxterm

insmod png

*anger* Xorg 1.6 is driving me crazy. *FIXED*

Ok, so I just reinstalled Gentoo on my main machine, and I installed Xorg too (with the appropriate input drivers installed too).

Only I can't get it to work.

Blank screen
No input of any kind
No way of getting out of it without a hard reboot

It's almost as if the Xorg devs expect people to stay with the CLI after the installation of Xorg-fail-server version "Goonandscrewyourself".6

First the log files lead me to...

Linux: Me and the lack of interest.

Posted 11-16-2009 at 07:22 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I wouldn't say I have gotten bored of Linux, but I haven't had interest in using it for the past few months.

Either due to the fact that I am too lazy to find a Linux disc to reinstall GRUB to the MBR, or the fact that my games are keeping me tied to Windows.

Maybe I need a PC to exclusively use for Linux? I got an old PC that I use for a file server whenever I decide to turn it on. Maybe I should just backup the files on that machine on to an external hard drive, and...

Linux From Scratch Rebuildathon: 64-bit edition Part 2

Posted 07-31-2009 at 08:13 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

After the last attempt at installation failed (it had something to do with misplaced headers due to package management failing to pack glibc correctly), I decided to try again. Using the 64-bit LFS CD/Instruction manual to build the toolchain, Gentoo X64_86 to build the base system.

Package Management: It's all in my head. Not a very effective way of managing what gets installed, but it is my preferred method of installing LFS.

And I've backed up the toolchain (before...
