      It builds and runs on the Alpha platform! If only nVidia and ATI would build a 3D-only graphics adapter, in similar fassion as the early 3Dfx Voodoo2, there would be more Linux/Alpha Graphics workstations out there. Voodoo2/Voodoo2 SLI works on the Alpha platform using Glide2-accelerated-Mesa3D and is quite fast. The string of feces that prevents the majority of today’s graphics accelerators (VPUs/GPUs) working on the Alpha platform is because most Alpha BIOS’s are only able to “emulate” the 16bit X86 VGA extensions to “re-map” the Graphics Accelerator’s VGA support. Sadly, every company built their VGA support upon 32bit X86 VGA mapping and the general stale-ness of the Alpha platform’s BIOS has simply not been updated because the lack of interest and skill of any maintainers. *Yawn*, Dark Places is slow, although the powerful FPU on an Alpha provides a *noticable* performance increase in the rendering.

      Alpha EV56 433MHz, 1024MB RAM, Matrox G200(Utah-GLX/DRI) + Voodoo2 SLI

      Anyone know where that “Alpha Troll” or the real one, in that matter, went to? Haven’t seen any comments from the ol’ chap on Dark Places.

      Well I knew the day would come when there was so much being done for Linux game wise that they would just list it instead. Three years ago I would see 3 updates a week of maby 5 things (Loki this and Loki that… RIP).
