Currently, the game will not run correctly on ATI cards using the fglrx driver. However, the ATI developers are working on new driver releases, and eventually the game will be supported.
I haven't experimented with the DRI drivers for ATI cards. If they implement the minimum set of features to run Doom, I would be very interested to get some feedback about it.
There are no amd64 builds planned at this time. However the 32 bit binaries will run in a native amd64 environement.
Localization is untested in the Linux builds at this point. More localization features are possible in future release. Until then, it's probably best to avoid copying over the zpak000.pk4 file at all.
Alsa and 5.1 sound
The sound engine currently requires the OSS API, and Alsa is not supported. Only stereo is supported. Alsa support and 5.1 sound may be available in future releases.
If you happen to go outside, the oxygen meter gauge will remain displayed even after you get back inside.
Doom III would hang during starting if you redirect the output. Pass +set in_tty 0 on the command line to fix: $ doom3 +set in_tty 0 > output.txt
