Ya, check
I ordered UT and Rune from them, Rune works like a dream, even better than in windows, but i was dissapointed to see that UT is normal UT for windows plus a Tuxgames CD with UT installer. Installer is a bitch tho... why dont they just make a simple, console based one that actually works... In other words i can't get UT to install correctly, i might need some help from you guys about this later...

Ok, i got it fixed...
The problem was that i mounted the installer CD, started the installation, and then i was asked to umount that cd and mount the UT cd, but that was impossible since the Installer CD was in use and you can't umount media that are in use. So i copied the installer to HD and installed like that, works great now..
Thanks for help

Try the following URL:

It lists just about everything that I have heard of in terms of Linux games. It even gives links to the developers' websites for you to follow.

Pretty good site.
