Punkbuster DOES exist for linux, natively. http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.p hp would be the link for the pbsetup app for linux (and windows) which does a full update/fix of the punkbuster files for a game. Any game that uses PB which exists natively for linux uses pb for linux, natively.

Now whether you could run a game in cedega/wine and use the linux version of punkbuster is another story. I'd be willing to bet only a native linux game would work with native linux punkbuster.

However, punkbuster CERTAINLY does make functional linux software. Hell I just played an america's army round a few hours ago in linux, punkbuster was running fine.

What this country needs is a good five cent ANYTHING!
