    cedega source code, help!


    hi, i'm new to linux so this is more of a how to problem.

    I have been trying to get winex or cedega, but i'd rather go free if possible.

    I see you can get source codes for free, but being a noob i dont quite understand how to do it all.

    Can anyone help?

    The cedega source is available for free, with a few conditions:

    1. The free code does not contain certain features (like the ability to run copy-protected CDROMs) because these are licensed and therefore not redistributable.

    2. You have to compile it yourself.

    A site that offers some more information on this is Transgaming.org.

    I have subscribed to Cedega in the past and I recommend anyone who's really serious about playing MS Windows games play them *in* MS Windows. They will always perform better on the platform for which they were designed. Good luck.
