Seems like only MAc and Win are supported, however according to winehq EVE runs pretty much flawless

Use wine, works perfectly, see the Linux forum section, ingame channel "Linux" winehq, bugzilla, etc. Also google is your friend.

Look in the Linux forum. There's a great post to getting EVE to work under Wine.

Magus got to it before I could. Laughing

Except when it doesn't, and then you're on your own.

There never was a native Linux version in the first place. They had some winex support, but that's about it.

Doesn't change the fact that wine does not work perfectly every time, and when it does not, the EVE forums are no help.

The same is true for every situation.

Common problems I have on wine:

EVE Locks up before the splash screen.
EVE Locks up on the splash screen.
EVE Locks up on entering space.
Picture is out of sync with monitor and 'breaks in half' when panning around fast. This is especially visible when panning past on bright planets.
Various minor graphics issues.
Running two clients gives really bad frame rates.
When running two clients sometimes only one client accepts keyboard input.
Client freezes occasionally for a couple of seconds.
Generally worse FPS and higher CPU use than on windows (to be expected, I guess..).

And no fraps.. :( (There are tools that do what fraps does, but the usability is way behind.)

So it's really a bumpy ride and I probably going back to using windows for gaming and general use and only booting linux for KDEnlive.

That's why we have winehq, bugzilla, the ingame channel, google, and, after all, common sense.

Seriously, I've been playing eve on GNU/Linux for over three years now over at least six different distros, across a ton of wine and kernel versions, on both Nvidia and Ati graphics cards, and I've never had any trouble with it that I couldn't solve after querying the sources listed above.

Hi Nina Treml,

We no longer support EVE on Linux. For more details, please take a look at this dev blog.

For players who want to play EVE on Linux, please take a look at this article on EVElopedia, our official Wiki.

We also have an official forum for discussions on Linux.
