I really like ubuntu, but always play games on my Win7 machines. I was curious as to how eve performs under wine in ubuntu. Do I need better specs than I would with windows? Could I run eve well on older hardware using ubuntu? Any tips or advice?

What are your system specs?

Mine are:
AMD 6000+ X2
MSI 770T-C35 (MS-7388) with 6GB DDR2 RAM
Asus GTX 560 video card with driver version 275.19

And I'm showing ~59FPS in space in a window. With most of the settings in EVE set to High. IN CQ its 17-24FPS

I think it's a driver issue. I noticed after upgrading memory recently and windows 7 up to 64 bit to use the extra fully, my gfx performance actually deteriorated under nvidia 64 bit drivers. Likewise under linux I feel it's the driver problem :( Ubuntu 11.04, latest nvidia binaries (from ubuntu packages) and 9600gt card i get 50+ fps in windows (was flat 60 on my 32 bit install same machine with 60hz monitor) and much less (as expected) in cq.. Under linux it drps to 20-30 in space. Oddly cq runs better on linux than windows for me.

*edit* before incarna my linux performace was 50+ in space, so something in the code isnt getting on with the driver.

CQ = Captains Quarters (Walking in station)

You will lose a little bit of performance on linux, but I don't find it a problem at all when I'm running only one client. When I run two, it's a little more of an issue because my machine isn't THAT powerful.

At what resolution?
Ubuntu 11.04
1280x1024
Nvidia driver: 270.41.06
Intel Core i7 940
GeForce GTX 560 Ti

I am getting 30fps in space, and I think my performance is poor in other games, too, like Left 4 Dead 2 (22 fps at 1280x1024). I just upgraded from a 8800 to a 560 and I'm really not seeing the perf increase I expect. Could be a wine problem, could be a GL/driver problem, I'm really not sure. I do have a weird issue where I can't play Eve or Steam because it can't find the GPU, then I reinstall the driver and it is playable for a little while. I am using the Ubuntu Additional Drivers driver release. Any thoughts on how I can investigate this?

EVE Performance on mine.

FPS stay at 58-60 (vsync equivalent) in space most of the time. In station it about the same but CQ is disabled because useless, take more time to load, lag...

Drivers are the latest MESA GIT and kernel GIT. Official AMD/ATI drivers give me a beautiful 7FPS in space.
CPU : Phenom II X6 1055T @ 4.0Ghz
MEM : 16GB DDR2-800
VIDEO : AMD Radeon 4870HD

Ubuntu Maverick (through Linux mint 10)
intel core 2 6300
3go ddr2
ati hd 4600, 1Go

used to run very well
Dropped to 15-20 fps in space and 20-25 fps in station without captain's quarter (o_O) , and this since the latest patch.

But so far i've seen that people with quite same configuration under Win 7 have performance issues too. Confused

I wasn't planning to change my hardware... hope this is just a problem coding the game engine (?) :/

Fedora 15
Catalyst 11.7 drivers
AMD Phenom II x2 550 3.3Ghz
4GB DDR2-800

changed video card from Nvidia 7600GS (with which I had 40-60 fps with all details to low, 20-30 fps for 2 clients) to Radeon HD6790 which gave me 18fps max in space for one client (all details to low also). This change coincided with CQ so can't really say how it would have worked without CQ or what changed with CQ.
Seeing the post above I am extremely curious to see how it will work with the ati opensource drivers.

Update:
installed the opensource driver, was blown away by the usability! You actually _can_ do something else while 2 EVE clients are running. FPS is good, for me just one issue, 2 clients seem to "share" 60 FPS, each has around 30FPS.

Gentoo amd64
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz
2GB RAM
GeForce GTX 260

Old machine, upgraded the GFX card about one year ago, but the rest is like 3 or 4 years old.

Had never a problem running Eve, but since the last patch if i dock the memory sometimes comes to its limits. Went back to w-space which fixed that for me Smile

If it gets worse i will switch to a dedicated runlevel with only minimal stuff running in the background and no window manager.

On linux you can always optimize some stuff if you really need to.
