Supergamer is a unique Linux distribution whose primary focus is on fun specifically, gaming. The SuperGamer Series started with PCLinuxOS and has matured to new levels. We are currently based upon VectorLinux with plans in the future to have our own code base. Our Gaming Livedvd is meant to showcase the Linux side of Gaming.
The SuperGamer is optimized for a gaming computer environment, with some tweaks to help speed up running from the LiveDVD. Extra games were added along with some demos of proprietary games. All Games are Linux Native. Users wishing to run Windows Native games, may install Wine or a Wine related application such as Cedega.
Despite Supergamer being a gaming distro, it comes with enough applications to be used as a primary operating system. Office apps include Adie, Orage, FOX Calculator, Gnumeric, J-Pilot, X Calculator, and XPDF. For network tasks we find Chestnut Dialer, D4X, Firefox, GFTP, Grsysnc, Samba Network, Wifi-Radar, and XChat. In multimedia we have Graveman, mhWaveEdit, MPlayer, RipperX, x264 ecoder, Xine, and XMMS. For graphics we see GQView, gtkam, MtPaint, and Shutterbug. Under the bonnet we have Linux 188.8.131.52, Xorg 6.9.0, and GCC 3.4.6. In addition, Supergamer includes several Windows wireless Ethernet drivers.
Supergamer’s System menu provides several handy utilities and tools, including Bulk Rename, GKrellm, Htop, Terminal, Thunar File Manager, vcpufreq, vl-hot-config, vwifi-connect, Xfce 4 Taskmanager, and Xfe (file explorer). In that same menu are the Gslapt Package Manager with VectorLinux repositories activated and the Vector Live hard drive installer. To use the installer, make sure you have at least an 8GB partition ready. It asks which partition to use, whether you’d like to name a separate home partition, and whether to install LILO. It copies the supervl user to the hard drive to get you started.
But the games are the big draw with this distro. Some of the games and demos included in Supergamer are America’s Army, Doom 3, Enemy Territory, Nexuiz, Postal 2, Quake 4, Soldier of Fortune, Unreal Tournament 2004, True Combat, Torcs, DropTeam, and Sauerbraten (Cube 2). Found in the menu are some more commonly seen games, such as BZFlag, Chromium, GL-117, Glaxium, NeverBall, and PPRacer.
