Cedega Linux Revives Linux Gaming - page 2
What's In a Name?
The tarball I was given access to was about 16 MB and was easy to install: untar it in the root directory. While not flashy, this was a media preview and I anticipate that the finished, shipping version will include a user-friendly installer.
There really wasn't anything to configure because I didn't have a previous version of WineX installed and didn't have any games installed.
To give myself a test bed, I used the Cedega interface, Point2Play, to install and start a game of Quake III, one of my personal favorites for both single-player and on-line gaming.
Everything Just Worked ï¿½: the installer started, I answered the usual questions, and the installation proceeded as if I was parked in front of a native Windows system, not Cedega's emulation/translation/port (or whatever you want to call if) of the Windows API.
Cedega, like CrossOver Office, even emulated a post-installation reboot. I'd forgotten how much I don't miss that annoying feature of Windows installations.
