    I seen at Slashdot transgaming released a program so you can run HL2 and CS Source on Linux.. The transgaming program uses wine but Im not interested in paying for this program. Does anyone know hwo to run CS Source or HL2 just using wine? WHen I try to install the STEAM Client when running FedoraCore3 I get some error messages....

    I've been spending all day trying to get Half-life2 and Counterstrike:source working on cedega (the program that transgamers released). I can't get it to work. Maybe other people have but I've failed.

    As for running it in wine, you can't. Wine cannot handle above directX 7.0 and HL2 requires 9.

    Cedega requires a 3 month subscription from transgamers. It's 3 a month, I can't remeber what that is in other currency.

    You can get the source code to Cedega free, but from that you have to compile your own binaries.

    Wine doesn't support DirectX 9 yet, but the latest versions already have a foundation started for it. As for Cedega's sources being free, could someone point to where they are available? I've looked all over their site, and I couldn't find anything.

    I thought I might add that the difference between the paid version and the CVS tree (besides having to compile it yourself) is that the paid version includes copy-protection handling algorithms that allow you to use copy-protected CDs (sadly, that means almost *any* game these days).
