How to get Quake II running in Gentoo Linux
Put the Quake II CD into your CD-ROM drive and mount it.
Switch to root.
echo "games-fps/quake2-icculus -ipv6 -joystick -sdl" >> /etc/portage/package.use emerge quake2-data emerge quake2-icculus echo "quake2 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
Switch to normal user.
Hit the ESC key and change the Video Driver to OpenGL and then Apply.
Gee, I wish all games were like this to install :-)
