Win32 Q3A Under Linux, Revisited

I followed the instructions for getting the Win32 version of Quake III Arena working under Linux (story). Actually I feel pretty stupid now. I should have known that the Linux executable would be included with the Linux 1.17 patch since it is included with the Win32 patch. At any rate, it works great! With the .93 NVIDIA XFree 4.0 drivers, my framerate is exactly the same under Linux as it is under Windows 98. The "jittery mouse" problem I experienced with the demo is not there with the full 1.17 version.

Now I just have to figure out which of the mods I have use QVMs and try them under Linux! I'm one step closer to being M$-free!
