After ~4 hours playing with my new video card [nVidia GeForce FX 5700VE] I’ve gotten it to work under Linux, and, for the first time in a while, I’ve been playing HL2. Under Cedega. In Linux.
And it’s just as damned good as under Windows. Need to tweak it a bit [some sound issues, and the interesting scenario of the mouse jumping out the window making me spin] but it runs well.
Yet Another Useful Distraction (TM)
Erm, yeah. I was meant to be sleeping whilst playing with the card settings … I’ve got to be up again in ~3 1/2 hours to drive to chase. Gah. I can sleep there :-)
