Humble Bundle 7 Approaching Two Million Dollars
Phoronix: Humble Bundle 7 Approaching Two Million Dollars
It's been another successful Humble Indie Bundle so far with the latest pay-what-you-want, cross-platform, DRM-free game offering approaching the two million dollar mark...
Sadly Dungeon Defenders doesn't work for me - has a segmentation fault compiling shaders at startup.
I wish the Humble folks would also hold the Linux ports to higher standards. For example many of the games capture all keyboard input. If you press the volume keys they swallow those which means you can't change your volume. Alt-Tab is also swallowed so you can't even get out of the game without manually exiting it.
It's sort of sad that this is a large part of the reason that I prefer to use WINE for a lot of games.

While that may be the case, no game should require root privs to run.

It still annoys me just like it used to but I'm part way through devising a quick and easy way to switch between the two on Gentoo, without having to stick to the old xorg-server when using the open driver. I've also created an ebuild for the game. Now that Christmas day (which is my daughter's birthday!) is over, I might actually get a chance to play it.
I did that myself on openSUSE. fglrx unfortunately replaces some of the libraries (libGL), so the best way is to create a shell script that uses update-alternatives (eselect?) to switch links between the two, and moves the xorg.conf file around. Also make sure that in /etc/modprobe.d it's not blacklisting the radeon module when switching to that.

I was hoping to be able to do the switch without rebooting or at least using kexec but I couldn't get either of those techniques to work. I did manage to come up with a method that doesn't involve downgrading xorg-server or switching configuration files around though. The result is an extra menu entry in GRUB 2. I've written about it on the wiki.

this is unacceptable ! this applies to 32bit and 64bit mode
it also saves the (empty) net.log in .klei/shank2 instead of any conventional folder
that's the first game by EA I saw which is running under linux natively

They added some games and so now they have passed $2 Million.
