Was it, by any chance, Fedora that youre using (based on RedHat)? I heard about that on /. Fedora tends to chew up partition tables. Micro420: You sure? You said you were using 3.2... I dont really have anything else to suggest. Still, you could take a look at the forum for the game at transgaming.com, maybe someone had the same problem.

Farcry is really ALL about the GFX card.
I have a (whimpy) athlonXP 2200, and a beefy (slightly OC'd) radeon 9800-pro, and I'm telling ya, I can maintain 40 or greater FPS most of the time with EVERYTHING on "very high" and using the most demanding display profile.

The only time I get FPS lower than 25 is when theres alota lights (like in some hallways) and in the "Dam" level when you go through the warzone next to all the lava that has a nice heat distortion effect when you look at things across the lava lake from you.

Its a shame that it dont work well in linux.

No need to worry anymore as I finished the game. I haven't tried it in Cedega but maybe it'll work better with it. I just eventually gave up in Linux and just booted to Windows to finish the game. I don't think I'll be replaying it as it is a LOOOONG game with a twisted plot line. Unfortunately, TOO many twists which was kind of silly. Who knew that Valerie turned out to be some transexual mutant? Hahhaa just kidding. I won't spoil it for you guys.

Farcry sucks because it uses Microshaft's DirectShit and it doesn't run on my computer AT ALL! Not only that, but it is a resource hog and it shouldn't be.

Thats my two cents. As for your computer not turning on (don't know if you resolved this yet because I didn't read this whole thread) try unplugging the battery on your mother board for a few hours. Some mother boards actually have a jumper to reset the BIOS so you don't have to unplug the battery.

First off, DriectX is just as good a 3D language as openGL, just less portable. second, of course its a resource hog, if you'v seen the physics engine at work youll understand the need for a good CPU, and dont even get me started on how great the graphics are at their optimum settings, ya you gota have a great graphics card, but thats the price you pay for the next gen games.

doom 3 is gona be more resource intencive, bigger textures and more graphical effects than farcry, people say that DirectX is bloated, but seriously if you take 2 games on par with eachother graphically, one with DX and the other with openGL, they will probably be on par with performance and size.

if you want a game thats not a resource hog, get Halflife or quake 2. thats my
