    Accelerated Xinerama

    4:08pm by rudeboy in category: Linux

    I finally got around to installing my GeForce 6600 GT this weekend. Installing mesa and the nvidia drivers was actually a lot easier than I remembered it from my original geforce-on-linux days. I’m not much of a PC gamer anymore, but I didn’t waste much time in tracking down the demos for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Doom 3. Not flawless, but more than I expected with the sorry state of closed graphics drivers on linux. Nvidia is set to release a new driver at the end of this month that is rumored to be a large improvement over the current 7676 drivers. We’ll see.

    Command & Conquer: Renegade still won’t run on wine proper, nor a cvs checkout of winex. I’m all but convinced that TransGaming purposefully cripples their cvs tree to intice people to pay for a subscription to the pre-packaged version (which actually works). Who knows, maybe I’ll pay my tithe and pick up a copy some day since several people tell me the few pc games I still play work perfectly on it. Anyone care to loan me a copy?

    "Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority." -Arthur Schopenhauer
