Day one cleared up all the FUD! Kids are happy, wife is happy, I'm happy. I really didn't doubt the outcome. Am glad for it to have been received so well. It is key to get them to sit down and just use it.

My wife discovered her card games and much more. The kids have yet to discover any of the installed games; they just played on their Webkinz site. I finally sat down as well to look at a few of the bazillion games. I first got a little gitty when I saw Doom and how well it performed. It brought back memories of college days. I knew instantly how much better it is now compared to the 386/486 machines we originally played it on. Looking forward to Heritic the same way. I wonder if Decent is available?

I have a 3D graphics card but have yet to install the closed source driver. I need some pointers... Scott, you know what card I have... give me some tips! Will be sweet when I get Beryl going with this too!

I also took a peek at an emulator. Don't recall the name, but apparently it only works with a select few games and providing you have the data files/CD. More for some older role playing games. Still interested in using wine or other suggested emulator.

Your video card?

Do an lspci and see what it is. If it's an nVidia, go the nVidia website and download the driver. To install it you'll need gcc, make, and kernel-devel installed. While there are third party repos that carry such packages, it is handy just to use the one provided by nVidia so you can make anew whenever the kernel is updated. Sometime the third party repos lag behind the kernel by a few days.

Give that try.
