I do not have windows :)
and I have no desire to do so, but I'm willing to pay if linux-port released.

Linux version please, an offical port (as its already been done) would be best :)

I got it working on openSUSE 12.3 64bit.

Used this page:
http://anton.logvinenko.name/en/blog/how-to-play-doom-3-on-linux.html

If you bought Doom3 like me, through steam, and you pc is dual boot like mine.

Start steam on Windows, go to your library, right click on the Doom 3 icon, and click show cd key.
If you bought roe too, same thing.

Then you can use those keys on you Linux install.

It would have been allot easier, if I just could have done this, through steam.
Notice the link you put in the command line, but officially they don't support Linux.
Some of the tools are released though, that why that link is their.

There are also improved versions, but the above one already worked for me, but here is a link:

I found out its better to use a different version.

https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3

This source code is already updated for newer pc's.

They helped me on an irc channel, and told me this.
Git clone whateverlink && cd dhewm3/neo && mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && make && make install

see: for more info this topic, (openSUSE forum)

Daft thing is theres been a native port for doom3 for years. Dare say its the steam side of it that would be the problem.
