I'm pleased to see activity on this list and see other Linux users
playing America's Army on their system of choice.
I've been playing America's Army for quite a long time on Linux and I
haven't had any problems. To be honest, errors occurred more frequently
on Windows™. I've got an ATI Radeon 9600 video card, so I had few
problems with setting a 3D hardware rendering, but it's a different story.
As far as I remember, I've successfully installed AA 2.5 on Debian,
Ubuntu and Gentoo. The latter is my current distribution. Basing on my
experience, Ubuntu, being one of my favorites, isn't the best choice for
gaming. Nevertheless, I don't intend to discourage you from trying to
install AA on your distro, but I'm afraid that it will require learning
few things and taking a getting familiar with the console.
First of all, could you please tell us something more about your
hardware? The most important thing is your graphics card. You should
have it configured properly to render 3D graphics. Few words about your
CPU and amount of RAM also would be welcome.
Secondly, could you please post any potential errors which occurred
during the installation? Any of them may lead to the solution.
I'm waiting for your reply.
