As part of the organizing committee for the IEC Open Source, I was asked to setup a gaming event during the 2 day IEC Open Source Fest!
With the Quake III source code GPL-ed, I compiled Quake III on Open Solaris and used the demo arena to setup a 'LAN Party!' The Open Solaris machines of course needed NVidia cards for better and smoother graphics and hence, I used 5 ultra 20 x86 machines with built in NVidia cards.
To run quake3, compile the GPL licences Quake III code (or you can use the packages available at iouqake3.org), use the demo arenas available (place your pak\*.pk3 files in your baseq3 directory) and there you go!!!!
Me, setting up the gaming arcade..
