I have tried UT2004 on three different distros, with different results. On
Debian, it did not run well at all. My Debian system had the filesystem
spread across 3 or 4 partitions (ext3). I then installed Linspire 4.x on the
same system and the game ran better than it did on Win98SE. I then tried
Xandros on the same system and the game runs better than it did in Debian but
not as well as it ran on Linspire.
Xandros and Linspire both install reiserfs by default. I don't know if this
has something to do with the results I experienced.
I don't want to install Linspire because although I think it is a great distro
for people who are new to Linux, it has disadvantages for people who want to
install software that is not included with Linspire. I had trouble getting
libraries for Linspire so I could compile software without breaking the
So what distros are people using with UT2004 and how does your game run,
better than in Windows/XP or not?
