Medal of Honor: Allied Assault on Modern Linux

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault contains the original MOH and the two expansion packs, Spearhead and Breakthrough. MOH was first released in 2002. There is a Linux installer , released by Iculus, for the game, but it is for the original version and is a beta release. The libraries it needs are not available in a modern Linux. There is a standalone Linux binary available here . To use it, install the game on a Windows computer, patch it up to the latest level and then copy the installed game to a Linux computer. Place this downloaded archive in the root of the MOH directory and launch the game with ./mohaa_lnx . An attempt to use Crossover 16 to install the game failed as it was not possible to switch to the second DVD disc. There is a possible solution to this by creating a single DVD installation disk for MOH:AA. This process is described here . Reminder:   DVD5 = 4.70 GB DVD9 = 7.95 GB Better yet would be to create a single DVD that would encompass the original MOH:AA along

Recover Data From a Damaged CD/DVD

This is just a convenient place for me to bookmark this information as it is just a copy of James Litten's excellent page about data rescue. The steps are simple. All commands are to be run on a single line. 1. Clean the disc. If the disc is cracked, it may come apart in the drive. You might try a small dab of superglue on the very outside of the crack to hold it together. 2. First pass (runs about 30 minutes). $ ddrescue -n -b 2048 /dev/sr0   ~/recovered/mystuff.iso  ~/recovered/mystuff.log 3. Mount the image and see how we did. 4. Take a second pass if we need it (about 24 hours). $ ddrescue -d -b 2048 /dev/sr0  ~/recovered/mystuff.iso  ~/recovered/mystuff.log 5. Take a third pass maybe with the CD/DVD in a different drive (24+ hours). $ ddrescue -d -r 3 -b 2048 /dev/sr1  ~/recovered/mystuff.iso  ~/recovered/mystuff.log
