Windows exe files will not work on lnux unless you have wine or VMware installed.

Go get the linux port of counter-strike. Just search for it on the web.

Did you get the rpm or tgz file

Don't bother using WINE...it's not as stable as the port I would think.

Here is the link to the full CS port.

Does anyone know if Condition Zero will have a Linux Port?

nano_box: that file is a linux server for counter-strike


bmxermark:

The best way to install counterstrike would be onto an existing windows partition first. If you are running linux only, then you can attempt it that way. I've never installed the Counter Strike retail version, but when installing it as a mod with half life, you can easily run the half-life setup program on the cd, download the updates and install files and install them through wine.

QUOTE
mount /cdrom
cd /cdrom
winex3 -- SETUP.EXE


Like I said, I've never installed the counter-strike retail version, however, my friend Crazyney has a website Linux Half Life that may be able to give you a little bit of a better idea on how to proceed. There are also forums there that deal specifically with getting half life (counter strike) running on linux.
