So you can run Tux Racer at acceptable fps? Where did you get the driver? Do they have one for the Radeon 9700? I checked the link but nothing was said about any Radeon cards.

For those who don't like to compile or install on Windoze first to be able to run FreeSpace, FreeSpace 2 or Neverwinter Nights,...

Check out ravage's installers. They use a wine routine to install the code directly into Linux, and look reminicient of Loki's installers for Quake 3.

ravage's icculus website:

For Quake 3, use the Linux point releases. You can get them from ID's website or the mirrors listed there.

Accelerated support is provided for Mach64, Rage, Rage 128 and Radeon chips by the "ati" driver, as is unaccelerated support for all of the others except the Mach8 and some early Mach32 chips.

For the Radeon 9700 (anything above 8500) Driver, you'll have to go to

and pickup the FireGL 8700/8800 drivers for 4.3.0.

Make sure you have your kernel sources, and the install should go fine.

Once you've done it, it's even easier than the nVidia install ;)

Dude, I've the full retail version of that for windows... I'd love to have another go on it, are there linux binaries or something? or did they release a linux version or something?

Can I get my windows version to run on linux? (My heart has quickened ;))
