    Default A New Game Comes To Linux And It's Not A FPS

    Phoronix: A New Game Comes To Linux And It's Not A FPS

    While quality native Linux games are rather in short supply, those that do end up coming out of the professional game studios end up being first-person shooters, just look at Doom 3, Quake 4, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Cold War, Unreal Tournament 2004, etc. Even on the open-source side there are many first-person shooters from Nexuiz to Warsow to many others...

    Good.
    There is a player for every game.
    more available (games), more happy people.
    I don't like to reboot for "just to play some game".
    I hope that some day i'll not have to do it anymore (not because i quit gaming or switched to console)

    Now what really lacks on linux is a AAAA race simulator, some kind of "racedriver grid" or "gran turismo"...

    Exactly, I'd love to play some good racing game on Linux.

    I get:
    $ quantz
    quantz: radeon_mipmap_tree.c:117: compute_tex_image_offset: Assertion `lvl->size > 0' failed.
    Aborted
    $
    when I click on the "symbol" to start the game or if I want to skip intro by clicking the mouse. Kubuntu 9.10, ATI Radeon 9600 AGP 256MB - open source radeon driver version 6.12.99+git20090929.7968e1fb-0ubuntu1.

    Anyone knows where to report this bug?

    sounds good and looks interesting. unfortunately there's no amd64-build available, and the x86-build require a libxcb.so.1 which appears to be not included in gentoos emul-linux-x86-xlibs.
