Description

This install script doesn't work on (or even I think help with) LAN multiplayer. For single-player on Linux it's arguably better to use wargus. For LAN, IPX is required which is no longer supported in the Linux kernel (which seems to be fatal in wine, even if a sufficiently old windows version is selected). There is ipxemu in windows but on wine this needs a special wsocks.dll and WINEDLLOVERRIDES=wsock32=n to be set, which I can't work out how to do in POL. Also this seems to want a cd or iso when many users now will want to use the GOG installer.
