Quake for Oculus Rift Working on Linux!

With a bit of Linux know-how, it's actually quite easy to get going. You'll need the official Oculus SDK for Linux and the Quakespasm Rift Mod source code, as well as the following patch to the Makefile: http://pastebin.com/RTQgSkDA

Be sure to modify the path to the SDK, and place libovr.a somewhere in your path (/usr/local/lib on my system).

It was necessary to run quakespasm in 1280x800 for the stereo images to line up correctly.
Running Arch Linux.

Nice. Good to see the Linux SDK is getting some use.
