Nope, just saves disk space...

well we try to at least have our code compile... ;-)
(although as evidenced by the recent 0.13 debacle we don't always
succeed ;-P)

actually I do remember that the id source as released had some issues
compiling on linux.  At the very least you might try using our
Makefile/directory structure in conjunction with the id source.

I'm betting that the problems you are running into come from the fact
that the structs in q2admin/g_local.h game.h and q_shared.h are
different that in our release of q2.  You might try insuring that all
the structs are the same and recompiling the source.
Let us know if you get it to work.

Good Luck!
