    Phoronix: Half-Life 2: Deathmatch Now On Linux

    One day after Day of Defeat was released for Linux, Valve has made Half-Life 2: Deathmatch available via the Steam Linux client...

    At the time of release, the Linux client was already enrolled in the SteamPipe beta - and the Windows version didn't have the Steampipe beta available until hours later. That's why there wasn't anyone on immediately after its release.

    I wonder if it works better with open-source drivers. Haven't tried those. Does anywone have any comparative figures on fglrx legacy/radeonhd on Source games?
    It does after all, but only for Fedora 18 clients (I'm still on 17). However, the new Xorg
    version in 18 doesn't seem to work correctly with fglrx legacy and has to be downgraded,
    so I'm rather lucky that I'm still on 17 and didn't have to do that too. Then I just followed
    the instructions here and finally got it working. Now the sRGB_decode extension is here
    and I can play!

    Hopefully they'll pop-up in the Linux library soon.
    Great idea, and thanks for the heads up.

    I assume he talks about the gallium (mesa) driver r600g, which does hardware rendering.

    Just wanted to point out that it seems like Valve put all the characters and campaigns from the first L4D into L4D2. So, unless I'm mistaken, you basically get L4D free when you buy L4D2. I'm not sure if anything is missing, but maybe someone knows? Either way, the games are so cheap it's worthwhile to just buy both.

    to remove my drivers due to a kernel update. I guess the akmod should mitigate that though...
    I'll try and report back, thanks for the tip.
