Linux, Kotor 1

I know that Kotor will run on Linux but how do I install it?
I have Linux Ubuntu.

I put the disc in and is comes up as a folder with the data and stuff in it.

Also I keep hearing things about something called "wine". ?
Edit:: No longer need info on Wine. Thanks anyway

Help would be awesome!

Edit2:: If a mod would please delete this thread it is no longer needed. Thanks!

You should switch to Gentoo.

I dont get why people will want to do the dance with wine and see if they can get things working....if you want to game, dual boot to xp for ze games, and back to linux to do the other unimportant wasteful stuff pcs are used for

I just don't like to dual boot. When I want do game I just don't want to be forced to have to make a reboot into windows, and when I am done gaming boot back into Linux, there is no point in that, other that wasting time, and spending extra HDD space for an OS I don't use. When the games I want to play run flawlessly with WINE, why shouldn't I use WINE then?

well theres the clincher isnt it.

You seem to be lucky Ray, in that all the games you like run in wine too I dont have that much luck.... kotor2, nwn2, CoD4, crysis, bioshock, fifa 08, tiger woods 08... no likey winey

wine is just another instance of linux aping windows functionality, to sweeten its taste to the masses

for those interested about what is compatible with wine, heres the app db at winehq

I am no bleeding edge gamer, Astro. I happen to like older games and do not dive into any new FPS that hits stores, also some of my games I have yet to beat, like Psychonauts, a diversity of Tomb Raiders, Far Cry, Flat Out 1 & 2 and more. There are also some classics I cannot stop chewing on. These happen to run, so what. When I'm up to Crysis, it'll run, no question. ATM I do not even own the hardware to run it above 800x600@medium. And seriously, I am not gonna do this.

Huh? Kotor II, CoD4, NWN2 are at least listed silver status ("Applications with minor issues that do not affect typical usage"). Fifa 08 is listed Gold, and Tiger Woods 08 ain't listed so this means nothing, because just because some application isn't listed in AppDB doesn't mean it doesn't run. Test results of bioshock are older than 2 or 3 months too, which is a lot considered WINE is under heavy development with a new release every two weeks. Crysis blows away most machines anyway so w/e.

Riiiiight. Because everything that Linux desktops offer is a bad Windows copy.

Why WINE exists.

I might add that neither gaming nor anything else done on a computer is a MS/Windows invention.

While were at it:

AppDB games list.

CEDEGA (commercial fork off of WINE) games list.

Run your favourite DOS based games/apps of the last millenium on 2000, XP, Vista, Mac, Unix and Linux.

[edit]
Just found PlayOnLinux, promising GUI to manage WINE.
