    Phoronix: A Video Of The Source Engine On Ubuntu Linux

    Here's a very brief video of Left 4 Dead 2, one of Valve's Source Engine games, with the OpenGL renderer running natively on Ubuntu 11.10 with the AMD Catalyst driver...

    This video needs a disclaimer: blink and you'll miss it.

      Wow, a whopping 14 seconds of shitty iPhone quality video. I guess that's how long it took before fglrx caused a kernel panic

        michael i think you need to invest in a proper camcorder or a camera with good video capturing

          I did have two HD cameras on me (Flip HD and a Nikon D5000 that can record 720p HD), but just used my iPhone 4S as just wanted to record a really quick video. With not revealing too much Valve Linux information at this time, and was told not to show the other Linux systems running in this cabal, I did this as just to be 'good enough' for indicating it running.

            This made me laugh so hard.

              Why? It's a progress, after all.

                You misunderstood me. I'm totally stoked about Valve's work! I don't think anyone can fathom what their contribution to linux actually means. In 5-10 years, if what Michael says and express through his excitement is true, where will linux be? How (and how fast) will it have evolved? Looking back, it will be amazing to think that this low fidelity video provided a glimpse of what was to come.

                The humor from your posting just reminded me of all the issues I've experienced when using fglrx and what other people experience with the driver. It's more from personal experiences than anything you said.

                  Well, it's better than nothing. I didn't really disbelieve it in the first place.

                    Video? There was a video?
                    I just saw a still image shaking around until I felt so much nausea... but then it was gladly over.
                    Come on, Michael, you can do better than this.

                        Michael, you said you had better cameras on you...did you film anything that you'll put on this website in the near future? (Talk with Gabe, more footage of gaming...)

                            So, in what you've been touting as the second coming of Christ for 4 years is now so inconsequential you didn't film your climb to the mountain top with a set of 3D Red Dot cameras?

                            Please, do us all a favor and just kill this site.

                            No, it's a process, specifically the end of the digestive process...
