    Now we are ready

    With much joy and happiness I would like to announce the victory over nvidia by Fatal Error. The drivers are installed and we are ready for games.

    Where do I get the good ones? The kind that will impress my 18 year-old son.

    If your looking for games that will make good use of that Open GL support you worked so hard to get. The standard FPS come to mind, Quake3, UT2k4, America's Army, and of course Enemy Territory.

    For a more unique game, check out crack attack (Tetris Attack open source, in OpenGL on linux) http://aluminumangel.org/attack

    There is a really cool combat flight sim that I keep finding myself playing when I should be working. It's called GL-117 you can find it here http://www.heptargon.de/gl-117/gl-117.html

    Also you can't deny GL-Tron/Armagetron for some old school action in a new 3d world http://www.gltron.org/ http://armagetron.sourceforge.net/

    And while I have to first hand experience I hear good things about NeverBall which is ssupposed to be a clone of the Sega Game super monkey ball which came out for the GameCube a few years ago. http://icculus.org/neverball/

    America's Army & Enemy Territory you can download there free.
    Quake3 & UT2k4 you could find on the internet but i would stray from downloading them you can also just buy them online for cheaper than what walmart & bestbuy sell's them for.

    Is this a Linux only disk or just the same one the winders people use? I do not want to use wine or the like. Native Linux Gaming.

    Enemy Territory is a great game. It doesn't take a beast of a machine to run it and it is alot of fun. Quake3 for Linux is also one of my favorites, mainly because it too will run on my outdated hardware.

    In most cases, you buy the windows disk, and perform a linux installation. (eg. install the Quake3 point release, and move pak0.pk3 from your quake3 CD to the Quake3 directory on your linux partition. Its not windows easy, but its not that difficult either.) IIRC the the UT2k4 install actually asks you to point it to the directory of the CD, and it wil get the files it needs, and place them where they need to go)

    Oh and one more that I can't believe I forgot to mention. UFO: Alien Invasion is a really unique strategy game based off of the old X-COM series. Basically you control a squad of human defenders who have to secure various locations that have been taken ovver by aliens. Its hard to explain, but very very fun to play. http://ufo.myexp.de/

    {EDIT} Damn, I really can't spell

    Re: Now we are ready, Or maybe not!

    1. Thank you all for the help.
    2. I re-booted today and lost the GUI, one assumes that the vid-card was not set up just right, eh? Not a big problem, just try again and maybe it will be better.
    3. CUPS is weird and I need to print some copies of my resume. What is more important, games or a stupid resume?

    4. I ain't going to deliver pizza! I am not a gEEk, I can get a real job.

    This is just a wild stab in the dark, but if you rebooted and can no longer get to X, make sure you have the nvidia kernel module set to autoload.
