So I’ve been working on getting Linux Garry’s Mod working this week. And it’s gone well.
I’ve got it all compiling nicely, all packaged. But I haven’t been able to test it.
We built a Linux testing PC but it doesn’t want to cooperate. When I start Team Fortress up it just shows a black window. I’ve messed with the drivers – changing them popups up an OpenGL error about a lack of scissorgl or something. The PC is running Ubuntu (the latest one – 13?) and has a Geforce GTX 240 (I think).
So that’s what I’ll be doing next week. Trying different graphics cards. Trying to build a computer on which TF2 for Linux actually works. Then I’ll be able to test whether Garry’s Mod actually works.
For now, if you want to have a fiddle you can download the latest SVN from here.
