Recompile Quake :o). The source has been gpl'ed and is avaliable
on ftp.idsoftware.com

This also means you wont need libc5, and can run an i686 optimized version

Unplayable, as quake uses svgalib to get the mouse events, and 
ttyquake works by using a svgalib wrapper to aalib.

It isnt as fun as using mplayer -vo aa to watch dvds :)

Also, if you recompile quake, you'll find that ttyquake wont play along nicely
do all you have to do there is compile the svga wrapper yourself
and stick it in the tty directory....
