I am Running Ubuntu 8.10 and Installed steam witch is working fine. I have also installed half life 2 and Half Life 2: episode 1 which I can get to the loading screen, However once it finishes loading and the menu is about to appear I get an error message "Platform Error: Module failed to initialize". Pretty sure that the game was never written to run on a Linux machine(correct me if I am wrong). What is needed to fix this problem? Is there any scripting I need to do?
