I just got Marathon to work on it!:) Well its AlephOne really, but it is still cool. There are a tone of lib you have to install to get the rpm to work but all of the lib it requires to run are out there in .rpm I used x386 versions, but I bet the x586 would run better on it.

It's a game by Bungie (same people who made Halo). It's old but VERY fun.

I'm astonished, frankly. What sorta fps you get with that? Have you managed to take it online? How much compiling did you have to do to get A1 to work correctly?

Just used an rpm...

I used an rpm, just google alephone rpm and you will find some, get the newest. I had to do it from bash though by typing su first.
Each time I tried to install the rpm I got a list of things I had to get, so I went though and got them. There were about 4-5 libraries to install for it to work. The FPS were 60, and it looked fairly good, opengl is not working for me yet. It did let me see a list of people sharing games, but I did not join one yet. It worked 'OK' with the game pad buttons, still works better with keyboard.
