So your saying that it should work with ALL mods running on Linux (In general)??

I've been trying to get the AQ2 mod going, with only partial success. It runs,
but I don't see the weapons and a few other things. And I think it's due to
the gamei386.so file that required for it. I've seen no way to build it for Linux.
