San andreas on linux recap

4 Oct

recap from first blog about gta vc and san andreas on linux of mine.

I have now installed the game on suse,xandros,ubuntu here is the walk through

So far it runs smoothest on xandros for me, ubuntu has great drivers for nvidia but not quite fast or smooth enough.

I am on a fresh reinstall of xandros, and havent installed any video addons that have previously givin me a hard time.

man this is quite nice,practicly like a san andrea only computer,or gta arcade. but what ever. I got reminded that I even

did the gta on linux page by a member of the gta forums website, I noticed that this person came from thier blog/website

My god, the person quoted me even with all my damn typos. I mean , I slappe dthat together to pass on to a few friends, I never checked for spelling errors or poor sentence structure. well I have noticed buttloads of traffic, so I slapped adsense on it and forgot about it. 4000 hits later,someone quotes me. guh.

well I looked at that person’s page and I have to say “nice fricken work” they did very well, more screen shots of the install than what I give, LOL I give none, this person gives noted errors, I give none. between the two I think you might get a pretty good install going. go to for the multiplayer version of gta. It works on linux now… you do not need cedega nor a subscription to a sub-par mag!

gamers war cry

    Did the game simply fail to launch, or did it launch a blank screen for a while, crash, leaving that as the output?

    If the latter, try clicking the blank screen immediately when it loads to avoid it entering debugging mode

    “(thread 0009), starting debugger…”

    Usually at this point it will just freeze and not proceed any further.

    ******editor’s comment****

    How about you tell what happened. Do not paste all that junk in here unless asked.
    did It lock up?
    did monkeys run through san Andreas and suddenly finish the game and leave you no pleasure?
    did video glitch?

    say it. don’t paste it
