Second Life Linux !!

After almost a week of Windows and Wine, the Second Life Linux alpha client has been released. Unfortunatly, it fails to run for me and just hangs (SL Forum : Hangs on startup). Bugger.

Update : It seems that copying all the config and user files from the previous version is enough to jolly the client into action. Just a little odd, as, if you're a new user you wont have any files to copy.

As far as I can tell, and aside from all the global 'in world' updates and new features, the only Linux bug's fixed in this release are that the Alpha blending workaround is no longer required and reporting PvP abuse will no longer crash the client.
