Games The folks over at Phoronix had an interesting interview with Linux game porter, Frank Earl. Despite the apparent decline in PC gaming, Earl has worked for Linux Game Publishing for several years and was seeking input from the community at large for game suggestions at Phoronix. He's also done work independently on porting various software over from Windows. The interview covers work that Earl has done, difficulties that arise in porting commercial games to Linux, successes they've had, his views on Linux in general, and his thoughts on the future of gaming in Linux.

Yeah, I bought the same game. Stopped working with Hardy which was very unfortunate. Had something to do with Xorg updates, I guess.
Just to cheer you up - it started working again with Jaunty. You just have to download a new installer from LGP's web site otherwise you won't be able to install it...
