Saw earlier post by a BSD user... so, brought Eve up-to-date on my work cluster..... flickers about same as my Ubuntu gaming box.

Until this thread, didn't realize how many Linux/BSD ppl played Eve.
(Figure for every 1 that posts, there's 3 or 4 that don't)

Yeah i know right? The topic is sad. But the turnout is impressive. And as you say, the vast majority wont post.

Maybe we should ask CCP for some numbers on how many Linux / Mac users actually play. :)

Me too. Similar issues as everyone else.

MacBook Pro retina
OSX 10.9.1
Wine 1.7.10 and 1.7.11 (neither worked)
Nividia GeForce GT650M

It also doesn't work on an older 17" MacBook Pro I have.
Nividia GeForce 8600M GT

I don't use Cider. Wine is simply better in too many ways. Some how I have managed to live without the captains quarters... :)

Good luck Snorlax. We all do appreciate it. If you need help, there are plenty here that would be happy to give you support.

Same here. PCLOS+ Nvidia card

I logged a petition and GM Smiley confirmed the problem and stated that it is at the EVE end.

He said that they were working on it but could give no time when it would be fixed.
