I know most of us (fedora-games-list subscribers) have grown from game
packagers to contributors also doing more "serious" Fedora work.
Still Games are fun and having good Games support in Fedora is important and I
know we are all still working hard to keep our game packages in top notch state.
Given that we have all these top notch state game packages its really a shame
that we've not done a Games Spin for F-9, and we might miss the boat for F-10
too. So I'm looking for someone to pull and coordinate the efforts needed to
get a Games Spin for F-10, as always I'm willing to help but:
Is taking almost all my time so I have no time to take the lead on this one, so
any takers? The first task would be to fill in the details of:
And ask for the spin to be approved.
Thanks & Regards,
I am a new package contributor to Fedora, and I currently only have my
first package, milkytracker, in Fedora. I am now looking forward to
package another program that I use and that is not available in
According to the Fedora Games Packaging guidelines, the data files of
Crrcsim should end up in /usr/share/crrcsim, not in
/usr/share/games/crrcsim. While I agree with the guideline, Crrcsim's
configure script doesn't (yet) support this and it always wants to put
files under the games directory.
Would someone have any pointers on solving the situation?
The one solution I have thought of is to manually mv the data
directory into the right place after make install. After this, I would
need to create a wrapper script that would cd to the data directory
(Crrcsim searches the current directory, in addition to some
presumably hard-coded paths) and then run the actual binary
executable. In this case, should I put the binary into /usr/libexec?
For future releases, it would probably be wise to work with the
upstream developers to make the simulator easier installable in
various directory configurations.
If any of you has some C++ experience and a few minutes to spare,
apparently supertux hasn't been buildable for a few months now. I could
really use some help...
(I'm sure the problem isn't that hard to solve, but I'm rather deep in
fixing/updating other packages at the moment.)
I'd also happily accept co-maintainers for any of my game packages
(celestia, gl-117, supertux, tuxpaint, tuxpaint-stamps, tuxtype2)...
