Orbiter

Base Orbiter 2010 updated with 101016 patch, and Oglaclient-110130 external renderer by Artyom "Artlav" Litvinovich.  Without Artlav's work I would not be running Orbiter in Linux.

HowTo / Notes

Testing on older hardware:

Tested with an ASUS P4P800E-deluxe mobo with P4 Prescott 3.2 GHz nudged up to 3.74 GHz, Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS pci, Western Digital Raptor 74 GB HDD, 4 GB of RAM.  I just installed an Nvidia GeForce 7950 GT 8X AGP 512MB DDR3.  Yesterday I stumbled across an Intel Pentium 4 EE 3.2GHz CPU SL7AA.  I'm also going to add another Raptor for RAID0, and switch to LVM.
