Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"A Linux port of Raven Software's popular doom-engine game"

According to the Game Tome News site:

The Linux Heretic port is moving toward completion. Here's what's new in the 1.0 beta:

  • Music support via the lxdoom-musserver and a updated soundclient (Now music works with standart OPL3, Midi-wavetable and AWE32-Midi (sounds great))
  • several network fixes (IPX and UDP) - now it would be displayed if a player quits a game
  • Heretic now works an a Netwinder (ARM) and on a SCO-Unix machine (happy Sysadmins :-))
  • some new graphic-feautures like linear and bilinear filtering within all graphic targets (X11/GGI/VGA)
  • fastX11 - a new graphic-target has been written, but it works only on x86 machines yet -> it doubles the fps-speed against the x11 target even in truecolor-mode !
