Curious - I installed LinCity on my laptop (Thinkpad T40, 1GB ram, LinuxMint(Gloria)). Both times when I've tried to run it, now, it freezes at the initial menu screen (mouse, k/b, everything - have to force power down the pc, bring it back up, fschk, etc.).
I'm generally under the impression that Linux,etc., runs ok on older or laptop eq. Is it too much to expect that LinCity will run on this platform, or might something else be wrong?
