Looking for nice Linux demos

category: offtopic [glöplog]
Hi there,
what nice Linux demos can you recommend? I have tried some, but they often lack libraries or hang or do not work for any obscure reason, which is sad. What demos run without hazzle? Thanx. I run openSUSE 12.1 which should not be too outdated i think.
Try wine.

Linux with its "OS as a DIY kit" approach does not help, the often-updated packages set is highly variable. The sound system is a legendary mess.

(But for science/engineering work, Linux and me, it's a love story. Go figure...)
plenty of mfx/kwl demos are ported!

Follow pista's advice - there are some nice native demos out there.
I even run some without x before using the fb (not from pouet IIRC - if I can dig up a link I'll post it).
Beware any that ask you to become root - I have seen that before.

That's ok, iq - I don't think Linux understands you!

You're talking about Linux, so -- none.
