Best Distro for Gaming with Cedega


I play City of Villains using Cedega 5.0 on Ubuntu 5.10. I've had good luck playing, but I have an issue where after about 30-60 minutes of play Cedega starts crashing. From then until I restart my PC it will crash regularily crash about once every 5-15 minutes. When it does crash it usually gives me an error about some video driver .dll file (I don't have the error message open in front of me)

There doesn't seem to be any real consistency to what causes it, as memory and CPU usage is fairly constant through the entire time playing. I have noticed that I get fewer crashes if I restart my computer before playing. The same thing was happening with Cedega 4.4 as well.

Does anyone else get similar problems with Cedega in Ubuntu? Is there a different distro that people have used that preforms better with Cedega?

My system specs:

Ubuntu 5.10
Kernel 2.6.12-686
AMD Athlon 2500+
1.5 Gb DDR RAM
GeForce 6600 GT 128Mb
Asus nForce 2 Mobo

sounds odd.. My guess would be that it's a problem with Cedega..

I would give it a shot on SUSE. SUSE is good for multimedia type stuff. You should be able to install the Cedega RPM just fine.

Do you just use Cedega, or do you also use Point2Play?

Cedega with Point2Play.

I'll have to try SUSE as well.

How well does SUSE support wireless ethernet cards?

it has been my experience that SUSE works excellently with wireless cards.

SUSE and FreeBSD have been the best for wireless. In my experience at least.
