Here’s a very brief video of Left 4 Dead 2, one of Valve’s Source Engine games, with the OpenGL renderer running natively on Ubuntu 11.10 with the AMD Catalyst driver.
Besides the pictures and information that Phoronix exclusively broke yesterday (and has resulted in the main server being out for nearly the past 24 hours), here’s a very quick and basic video just showing Left 4 Dead 2 from the Ubuntu 11.10 workstation I was checking out from within Valve’s Bellevue offices on Tuesday.
There’s nothing new out of the video besides showing the game actually moving and such to show that the original “Source Engine on Linux” photos weren’t doctored or anything.
Again, see yesterday’s article (now that the main web-server is in order) for full details on what can be publicly talked about for now concerning Valve’s ongoing work to bring the Source Engine and Steam client natively to Linux.
