I have been looking for a while now on obviously running a game server in linux and found several usefull link. I though to myself heck if we can use all this scattered + old + new info and make a guide in SL. I am sure someone would find some of this info usefull in future.
Hopefully anyone that has some experience about this or some of these games can comment and we can build a nice new part to the wiki dedicated to linux games / servers.
PLZ feel free to add links and or modify some of the info so that we can build current working guides / wiki parts for linux games + linux game servers.
We might even be able to host our own SL game servers for specific games ? SL clan ? or something if there is big enough demand.
I had issues 2 years ago with linux dvd and the 5 cd's in reality on the actual dvd + linux did not correctly follow the link to continue installing etc so I ended up at linux-gamers.net and they had a fix for this there.
Links needing to be updated / scrutinized then build into wiki's.

I even ended up looking for servers and found this for server / dedicated gaming server hosting :
us$29 to us$55 a bit expensive but they have very nice parts for the price likely the best parts for the price I have found.http://www.bodhost.com/vps_hosting.shtml
The virtual servers at better price us$8pm to us$20 pm :http://www.bodhosting.com/shared-hosting.shtml
Just needing space I have seen http://www.megaupload.com/
