Highly mobile linux (and Games)
Wow I digressed a ton before I even got my question out. My original post is below. But what do you guys think of a future where you carry your OS/games on a portable HD and just plug and play on hardware that is around?
So I am currently not in the BETA but would love to talk to some other linux users regarding mobile gaming platforms. I have a USB 3 hard drive that I have Mint Maya installed on and steam w/wine setup. Well actually several steam instances with several wine instances. So far I have been able to take this platform and boot on anything with an Nvidia GPU and play all my titles fine (great even) so far I have working l4d2, FalloutNV, Boishock1&2, deadspace 1&2. My next focus is going to be more multiplayer games. Does anyone have any suggestions? I get a lot of my wine config ideas from PoL and then just do it myself so I can do minor tweaks myself as needed.
Also I am working on a script to detect (Grep) video hardware and swap to the correct driver files/ and .conf files durring boot. I found someone elses script that did the same thing but only swapped the conf file for X between one for nvidia and ATI/AMD. He declared it a failure since they each install conflicting open GPL. I realized just have the script go a couple steps further and swap the libraries at the same time.
