At the time of writing this included [[DarkPlaces]], [[ezQuake]], [[Fitzquake]], [[FuhQuake]], [[QuakeSpasm]] and [[TyrQuake]]. * [http://www.mobygames.com/game/linux/quake-the-offering Quake: The Offering for Linux - MobyGames:] * [http://www.quakeforge.net/ The QuakeForge Project] ====Installing from the original CDs==== If you own the original CDs, you can either install the games directly or create installable packages for Quake, both mission packs, as well as the corresponding soundtracks. You first need to install a program called [https://wiki.debian.org/Games/GameDataPackager game-data-packager], with the usual commands (sudo aptitude install game-data-packager for Debian). Once this is done, packages can be created using the following commands (insert the appropriate CD first): * game-data-packager quake --package quake-registered (for the original game) * game-data-packager quake --package quake-armagon (for the first mission pack) * game-data-packager quake --package quake-dissolution (for the second mission pack) Similar commands exist for the soundtracks, which must be packaged separately: * game-data-packager quake --package quake-registered-music (for the original game) * game-data-packager quake --package quake-armagon-music (for the first mission pack) * game-data-packager quake --package quake-dissolution-music (for the second mission pack) See the program's help on options --target-format and --target-distro to customise the output format (deb, arch, rpm) or make it fit for a particular distribution. In general, game-data-packager quake --help will tell you everything that the program can do for quake, and game-data-packager (without any option) will list all supported games.
