Hi,

I don't play many games on linux, but I need FreeCiv on any distro I use - it is my heroine. However, there doesn't seem to be a working package for it in the official repo, EPEL or RPM Forge. Does anyone know of a package for FreeCiv? I'd rather not have to build it from source if I can avoid it. Cheers for any help you can give me!

Hello,
The Fedora 13 package might install without a rebuild but I have not tested it. : http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=232796

Unfortunately it's not that straightforward, the Fedora freeciv package has dependencies on SDL_mixer and ggz-gtk-client that don't exist in SL6.

SDL_mixer

Is available through the RPMforge repo.

I have no idea what effect the following might have on the stability/security or performance of a stock SL6 install.

I was able to get it to install here on a i686 after rebuilding ggz-gtk-client-0.99.5-2.fc13.src.rpm LINK following this guide: http://scientificlinuxforum.org/index.php?showtopic=128 and installing ggz-gtk-client-0.99.5-2.el6.i686.rpm , ggz-gtk-client-devel-0.99.5-2.el6.i686.rpm that the rebuild created.
Then I just installed the fedora 13 version:
CODE
$ rpm -q freeciv
freeciv-2.2.5-1.fc13.i686


I already had the SDL_mixer.

The packages of RPMforge do not compromise or overwrite base SL packages.

If you install RPMForge, there is an additional "extras" repo file which is disabled by default.
Should you enable that, you have more packages but they do overwrite base packages.

You misunderstood me or I didn't make what I was saying clear. I meant I don't know what the effects of rebuilding and installing: ggz-gtk-client-0.99.5-2.fc13.src.rpm , freeciv-2.2.5-1.fc13.i686.rpm will have on a stock SL6 security ect....

Hello,
A package built on the deployment system from source rpms should not cause any problems as long as during the installation rpm didn't warn you about conflicting with other packages (esp. core system packages).

Hello,
There where no errors during the build or install.
I was thinking more along the lines of ggz-gtk-client's server login,remote server and player chat. I don't know anything about it or what steps may or may not need to be taken in order to run the game "safely".

Sorry, my mistake for not reading very carefully. Unfortunately I can't comment on FreeCiv's security but I suspect it would be safe (just guessing though).
