Would it be possible to run this on the raspi?

Once the SDL library is ported, which it must be if Quake 3 is already on it.

Nice, I wonder if it will run smoothly though.
Rule #1: If a human tries to argue with a logical device like a computer, the device always wins.
Rule #2: A big bucket of water, window, or hammer can nullify Rule #1.

There more to it than that and fact just compiling SDL would be enough for input and sound. But SDL 1.2 doesnt help much in the way of opengles.

So all opengl code would need to be made opengles compat, the time needed depends on what GL API is used.
Then a EGL window method would need to be chosen, the best option is either SDL/X11 window. But in the case of Quake3 I believe they just wrote a EGL RAW framebuffer plugin. As the driver does not work with X11 yet.
So if a port was to be done \'now\' then same would have to be done for AssultCube. Which or may not be more difficult depending on how SDL is used in the client.

I am very new to this, my Pi runs wheezy lunix .
I have just dowloaded the assault cube files and are now in a folder on the Pi.
What do I do now?
If there was a police division dedicated for Raspberry Pi I would be frog-marched away...
