For those with fond memories of Tux Racer, you might want to try the fork Extreme Tux Racer.
In everything it resembles the original Tux Racer.

All you need to do is download 4 RPM flles depending your system (i686 or x86_64):

32-bits / i686
extremetuxracer-0.4-3.fc12.i686.rpm
extremetuxracer-common-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
extremetuxracer-papercuts-fonts-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
extremetuxracer-papercuts-outline-fonts-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
Download these files here.

64-bits / x86_64
extremetuxracer-0.4-3.fc12.x86_64.rpm
extremetuxracer-common-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
extremetuxracer-papercuts-fonts-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
extremetuxracer-papercuts-outline-fonts-0.4-3.fc12.noarch.rpm
Download these files here

Seems to also require opengl-games-utils, and libSLD_mixer. I didn't see the latter available in the Fedora repo given in the link.

Thanks for pointing this out. Those packages were already installed on my system, so that is why they didn't show.

opengl-games-utils-0.1-9.el6.noarch.rpm: link
SDL_mixer-1.2.11-3.el6.x86_64.rpm: link (is for EL6, not Fedora 6 as mentioned on the website)

Yup that did it. (It required a few other things that were available with normal yum, zenity and something else I've already forgotten.)

Thanks. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2835777/egyptian.gif

In my experience, it helps to have a reasonably modern driver for your video card. In my experience, some cards will work well with the open-source drivers. nVidia supports their linux customers quite well while open-sourced radeonhd drivers are a little more difficult to find. My advice would be to check that also. Extreme Tux racer sails with a good setup
