Last time I checked Eternal lands was failing under Karmic, so it was a huge surprise to find the bugs had been ironed out (I filed a few of them;) and the game is now rocking in Lucid. Yes, yes, I booted up the MMORG last night and it did everything it was supposed to do – pretty impressive for the kind of system I am running (1.8ghz Celeron, 8 series NVIDIA, and 1Gb Ram). Eternal Lands is a splendid fantasy filled arena, not a shoot ‘m up, which is seriously going to entertain boys and girls when they are not rummaging around the slightly higher definition, but slower environments of Second Life and OSgrid
Wish Dragon Oath would get itself ported to linux somehow.
If you really need a surregate life, then install Snow Globe, the Ubuntu Second Life client:
Add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openmetaverse/ppa/ubuntu lucid main
You can then :-
apt-get update apt-get install snowglobe (or) apt-get install snowglobe2
For some extra entertainment, I played the Linux demo of the world’s best game of 2009, Machinarium. Here is the download.
Still a little slow considering my set-up. Guess its time to upgrade my CPU.
$100 donation anyone?
