I think my errors are to do with my CPU id, is anyone else not even been able to start the program?
CPU Athlon XP 3200+
GPU nVidia 6200
MOB nForce 2
I highly doubt that there will be a 64 bit linux version soon. Also i think an official installer will come out before that happens
This was mainly to show that scripts can be always written shorter. Using only curl is even shorter but thats only preinstalled on fedora - wget is there on debian usally. Well you always need unzip...
Excellent. Hopefully, NetBSD, FreeBSD, Solaris and Haiku ports are next!
Seriously though, Source games on Linux: Want. Steam will definitely be coming, but the games? If they are, it might just be HL2 and CS:S initially, maybe Portal 2. But even that would rock.
Yes, there will be issues encountered which are only effecting certain distros and versions, but that's really just one more thing to throw into the mix as you already have support dealing with certainly problems only effecting certain hardware, and different Windows versions, etc, so it will be like anything else support has to deal with. What you could have if all else fails is simply a select few distros and versions that you officially support that you can tell someone "okay, well I apologize, and we're still investigating whether or not the issue is due to your sound card or not, but until then we haven't ever had this problem with Fedora/Ubuntu/whatever version whatever, so we'd recommend trying it there from a liveCD or USB installation" blahblahblah...just some ideas. ^^
