    Phoronix: Prey Linux Retail Client Released

    Back in October Ryan Gordon surprised the Linux community by releasing a Linux game demo of Prey two-years after the game began shipping on Windows. He was contracted to port the Prey server to Linux but this was the first time we were seeing any client...

    Heh... The big deal is being able to obtain the Win variant. That's what this is- unfortunately, there's no rights access for a publisher to produce an "official" meatspace version for Linux. I'm just tickled that they (finally...) let Ryan provide it to us.

    It wont have a logo on it, it'll be a windows version with a burnt CD with the installer because they don't have the rights to publish the game.

    Edit: Blast you skkayman, beaten to it again!

    they copy it from cd because when run something from cd, you cannot umount it and mount preydvd then

    That's anyways a very bad practise. This entire script should be just:
    /bin/sh prey-installer-12072008.bin

    Today arrived tuxgames.com prey edition. Surprise is that it's Soldout windows version with included CD with linux installer..
    and, unfortunately, there is bug in setup script
    Code:
    cp ./.prey-installer-12072008.bin /tmp
    chmod 700 /tmp/prey-installer-12072008.bin
    cd ..
    /tmp/prey-installer-12072008.bin
    installer is with dot at begining but it try to run without dot

    But still, I am glad that I supported linux company and let's play it now! :P
