check the games section but beware most of these games are for puppy 2.xx and 1.xx but most of the will still work in 3.00 a good many games that are just for puppy 3.00 have already been compiled

torcs racing game here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=21982

also there is the compiz and beryl window managers that are full 3D environments with special effects that vaporize your socks....

Yup. Search the forum for games and you'll see some posts about games we've confirmed to have running (Planeshift, Nexuiz, and some of the free Doom's, off the top of my head). You do need to install some dependancies first though, like OpenGL, possibly better drivers for your graphics card, maybe a kernel module for DRI (if the graphics drivers don't provide their own), sometimes SDL, sometimes Python, etc.

Basically, a Linux is a Linux. They might not all have the same things installed, but with a little elbow-grease, you can theoretically run any Linux app on any distro. Sometimes it involves a trip through a place called dependency hell, other times they just work. It depends. No pun intended...

I like Armagetron.

Playing Armagetron on line is fun.

Hmm... I've never heard of that. I did a quick search of the Planeshift forum and it seems to be a built-in component. From what I could see, it looked like having faulty OpenGL or driver settings would make an error message about not being able to find that component, probably because it didn't load properly.

If OpenGL seems to be installed and working, posting the full error message might help track down the problem.

If you're in the mood for searching out similar errors, the Planeshift forum is here:

They have a Linux specific section, which would probably be the best place to look in this case.
