Install OpenArena on your EeePC for Quake like FPS linux gaming

Open Arena is the equivalent of open source quake 3. It’s quite impressive on the EeePC. If you want to try it out, open a terminal by holding down (ctrl)(alt)(t) and type:

  • sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list


add the following line to this file:

  • deb http://www.geekconnection.org/ xandros4 main

Press (ctrl)(x) followed by (y) and then (enter) to overwrite the old file with the new changes.

Back at the terminal type:

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install openarena


Press “y” to install these packages without verification…

Once installation is complete, type:

  • openarena


Reboot if you get a “segmentation fault” and try again. But you should be thrown into the glory of open arena. Happy fragging!

I think the repository is out of date by now (June 19 2014) so can you please email me the package directly? Or can you tell me where another repository is where I can get OpenArena?
Thanks.
