Q1) What are the best linux distros for running X-Plane and why? Q2) Can I expect compatibility issues with 3rd party developers like Flight Factor when trying to install addons? Q3) Can I expect frame rate hit under Linux? Q4) Can I expect a frame rate hit using Linux NVIDIA drivers?
Hello all, I am completely new to posting on these forums, as I have just recently started getting into sims--specifically Prepar3D. I will be looking to do Naval Sims, so on a side note if anybody has any useful tips on anything feel free to let me know! I am currently using a Linux machine. This is a problem knowing Prepar3D only runs on Windows. I am wondering if anybody has any experience using Prepar3D on a Virtual Machine, specifically VMWare. I would be trying to run Prepar3D on my Linux machine through VMWare. This also raises another question, which is about whether or not VMWare will use the dedicated graphics card for the machine or not. I have done some research, and I am finding many yes it will work/ no it won't work, so maybe somebody can here has some experience with it. If VMWare does not work, or you know of something other then VMWare that could work for hosting Prepar3D on a Linux machine, I encourage you to let me know, as I am not limited to VMWare. The goal is to not have to switch from my Linux machine, as I would have to basically build a new machine specifically for this (probably what most people do anyways, but I am just looking to get my toes wet and see what's up before I do that). Thank you to anybody that reads this, Jake
