Talking Questions from a noob


Well since i've barely had slackware for 24 hours, and its a slow old computer(450mhz p3, 96mb ram, and tnt 32mb 16bit) i want to play old games...like Final Fantasy 7, Star Crusaders, and try some newer ones like age of empires 2, and Half Life....but i can't even install them and wine won't install right...or it just won't run...i dont know...

So first, whats some good emulaters or programs to run games?

Second best WM with that settup to use to game?(do wm even matter when gaming?)

sorry to say this but you have to try again to install wine as its the only free option if you want to run windows games , the other option is cedega which isnt free but very cheap ( 5$ per month ) and you could get it for free from there cvs

here is a howto : http://frankscorner.org/index.php?p=cedegacvs

Arch is a distro. I don't think it would "affect" the programs, per se.
