Nice. Time for me to catch up and see what all the fuss is about with this game.

Me too. I was REALLY skeptical about this game. But now,I'm kinda in the mood to try new things.

Yeah, I'm in. Gotta try it with my Nvidia 3D and see how that works on the old engine :)

I searched the alien arena forums about the Linux openal audio drivers and found that I will need to update my Fedora 8 to play.
Does anyone know if there is an openal, openal-soft that will run in Fedora 8? the only ones I found were for Fedora 9, 10 & 11.
Otherwise, it runs great in Windows XP
