AW: [bf1942] Secret weapons linux server?

Well actually I have installed it on a linux box and the server itself did
run. But the problem are the clients. Because SW does update the clients to
1.45. So I have took my good old 1.4 installation and copied the XPack2 folder
into it (mod-like) and started it. The funny thing was - I saw servers... but
when I tried to join this 1.4 with XPack2 Linux box, I got the message
"Wrong map" - which is kinda strange.

Also in the mod switch overview of the Windows client, the version number
1.45 for XPack2 is shown against 1.4 for pure and XPack1.

Maybe I did something wrong, but in the meantime it means waiting for a
linux version and well, we still have that GPL problem, haven't we? So it might
be a long time until a "usable" linux version might be available (don't we
know this from some time ago...).

So for all pro's out there, it's moving to Windows in the meantime. Sorry
about that.
