about linux and cycles

I’ve been trying to figure out the linux version of cycles for a couple weeks now and it’s at present not making light. I followed the tut and all (might still be missing something) but I was wondering if there is anyone else with the problem? Obviously, I know it’s essential in a very early alpha and wouldn’t be surprised if it’s just a bug at this point but I wanted to eliminate stupid mistakes I tend to make first.

You might get more help if you actually give some information!

What tutorial? what isn’t working? what is the problem?

I’ve been using it on linux without problem since release…but I’m no mind reader!

the blender cookie one.

and the emission setting doesn’t seem to be doing anything.
