I feel that I have to contribute my moneys worth here, more so, because the Dawn of War Games, are the only games that I play these days, and so therefore, getting them to work on my Linux systems, is fairly important to me.

I have the entire collection as DVD, but also now that they are available on steam, I have also bought them via steam too!

Annoyingly, they are not under the list of Linux / SteamOS games, and I would love it if they were supported in this way, but hey ho.

Now, whether this game works or does not, seems to be based entirely on the flip of a coin.

The system flips a coin during the install, and decides there and then if it wil work or not, and from that moment on, thats what you get.

My Linux Laptop is an I7 with ATI Graphics, and it runs it just fine. Always has, it ran it great under Sabayon and mint, and now under Kubuntu. Never had a problem.

Now, my main LinuxPC, I have just knocked up only recently. is an AMD A10 setup, running mint and I have both onboard 8670 graphics but also a 6670 Radeon card ( for Dual graphics under Windows ) and I have tried each individually plus together but no way can I get the game to play?

I got other graphical options, and I may try out a new card later on, but this is seriously knocking me for six like this.

So, do I tick the runs well, like it does on my laptop, or the not runs well like it does on the desktop??

I will have to leave them both blank I feel.
