Why no make this into Deb or RPM or even YUM packages instead of plain source code it would solve a lot of dumb question on here about how to install or whats wrong with this. most of the time when something is wrong with a program in linux that was installed using source code its the users fault. Deb RPM or Yum Packages will eliminate user errors.

It's still in alpha. When it reaches beta status I'm sure it'll be packaged.

correct, we dont target endusers/endusage yet however stable it may be certain days.

anyone is free to package it for now, I know some people are looking into it

also why do you need shader 3.0 for a program that ran fine on a xbox that only have shader 2.0. just seems weird for it to be targeted for highend linux users which is a oxymoron.

So the 60% of the worlds top 500 supercomputers (http://www.forbes.com/2005/03/15/cz_dl_0315linux.html) that run linux only do so because they aren't high end enough for a real OS?
