LavaDevil: thats what i did, switched the jumpers physically. was good fun, i didnt have the expertise to get mandrake to boot so i just reinstalled it. make me realize that it takes about half the time windows xp took me to install, and i get way more functionality with it. and i kept all my settings... wow i love linux.

and i realize it is possible to run cs under wine, ive tried tutorials but it's hard (i couldnt fix the ambiguous filenames for the dlls required for dhcom and ie). i was going to get starcraft working first, then move on to cs if i could handle it (baby steps, kindof) but since i havent even got that working yet i still need my windoze :/

i think it may be time to bite the bullet and purchase the latest winex.

and thanks again lavadevil for answering me

I recently came across SCL Beta (StarCraftLinux)

I downloaded it and it was able to install starcraft and broodwar seamlessly. It ran perfectly as if it were running on windows. It allowed me to run starcraft without a disk, in a separate x session, and play multi player ( and Local Area Network.) games

It is still in the early developmental stages and might not work entirely. It worked perfectly for me, so go give it a try.

Future versions will auto detect hardware, will have support for StarCraft2 (will automatically download and install it) and much more. These are just a fraction of the future features (all that I can remember).

Download SCL, run it, PLAY SOME STARCRAFT!!!!!!!


I am running knoppix 5.1 with wine 0.9.12

Thanks for the tip.
I have to try it out as soon as I can.
I just looked a the file. Basically it's just a script to get everything running and requires the starcraft CD.
But making life easier for people is always something good.
