Thread: Quake on linux
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
Which Quake (1,2 or 3) are you trying to install, and how? Are you using a script like one of these? What type of video card do you have, or is it just onboard graphics?
If you have onboard graphics, you're probably not going to be able to play anything 3D at any acceptable speed, even if you can get the 3D drivers to work.
I've never actually *tried* to run Quake 3 on an integrated graphics card, but even if you can get it to run, it won't run very well. Quake 3 is a relatively lightweight 3D app compared to some these days (*cough* Doom 3 *cough*), but it still requires a certain bare minimum to be able to render properly. If you have a spare PCI or AGP slot, I'd *highly* recommend getting some sort of an upgrade. A video card that can play Quake 3 will run you around $40USD these days. If it's a laptop, you're not going to be able to do anything about that, unfortunately.

Quake 3 will run fine on intergrated graphics... in windows
I've found in linux that if you want to do anything 3d you should have a card with Nvidia stamped on it.
If you don't have an AGP slot, Quake 3 will run fine on a 32MB PCI card
