Linux Cedega Download

Filed under: Linux Software — at 4:33 am on Thursday, March 20, 2008

There are a few options when it comes to playing Windows games on Linux. Cedega is a great tool to allow you to play these games under a Linux system. I was recently browsing around to find the Cedega Download from CVS instructions and found the normal source that I got them from no longer had them. I was wondering if it was an issue with Cedega but came to find out that there is an easier way then that now.

Check out:

You can download a script called This script allows you to freely check out the source code for Cedega and compile it. WineX and other versions of Wine are also included. I would highly recommend paying for Cedega if you can afford it, if not its worth a shot to use the Cedega Download utility.

I remember reading a while back in a PC mag that although cedega was a good idea, many, many games still didn’t work even if it said so on cedega. what is it like now?

thanks for commenting on GoldCoaster blog

Well, some games work, some not so well.

I think the product is a lot better than it used to be.

These instructions are to download Cedega by CVS. If you pay for Cedega you get to vote for games that you want support for. Nobody says these games will be supported except the number of votes do I don’t know how I feel about that because votes can be forged. So, I’d get Cedega by the CVS Download method and just see if the game works or not.
