Installing XGL on SuSE Linux

April 18, 2006

Yesterday, I was once again fooling around with my Kororaa XGL LiveCD and decided that I want XGL on my SuSE platform. With that said, I did a quick Google search for some directions on how to install and run XGL. After looking at the page for about 2 minutes, I knew I was not going to be able to install something like that (not with my experience). But, for those of you who can do something like this, here are the instructions. I suppose I will wait until SuSE 10.1 is officially released (stable), which is supposed to have an option for installing XGL off of one of the disks. Have fun!

PlaneShift 0.3.014b Installed on Linux!

April 17, 2006


I succesfully managed to get the new release of PlaneShift installed on my SuSE Linux platform. It was really quite simple. After downloading, open the terminal and type the following(I ran this as root, you may not have to):
>su
#a+x chmod PlaneShift_CBV0.3.014b.bin
#./PlaneShift_CBV0.3.014b.bin

The installer then runs and PlaneShift is installed in the chosen directory. After installing it is reccomended you run the updater (simple open a terminal cd to the directory PlaneShift is installed in, and type ./updater). Then, enjoy the game!

It has now been shown that one can successfully boot Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux all on the same machine. This was done on a MacBook, but should work with all macs. Now, with the possibility to boot all 3 OSs on one computer, PCs will soon become a thing of the past. Mac is the new thing now. I mean how much better can it get? Mac OS X, Windows, AND Linux!! Who could ask for any more? Besides, it has already been proven that Windows runs a WHOLE lot better on a Mac. Read more here.
