    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    UT2004 no go

    I have sort of the same problem - I just did an os update (FC4) and a UT2004 update (to patch 3355), and when I run UT, I get the same error msg.

    Had a quick look in the /usr/lib dir, and found that I don't have a libstdc++.so.5, but I do have libstdc++.so.6, which links to libstdc++.so.6.0.5.
    Thing is, UT used to work before the update. Although it did crash a round and a half in while playing. (which is why I decided to do the update in the first place)
    Can I create a symlink to link 5 to 6?

    My machine also runs dual boot XP/FC4.

    WORKING AGAIN!!!

    From what I found with Google, it looks like a dependancy thing.
    Install the following package:

    compat-libstdc++-3

    Now I need to test if it still crashes out on me. However, a fragging a will go! w00t :)
    And no, the symlink thing doesn't work.

    You might also make sure your version of UT2004 is up to date. There have been patches since the retail box shipped. Some useful Linux installers for UT (and other games) can be found at Loki Installers for Linux Gamers, here:
