Frozen Bubble

I am looking for a game I found on Mandrake 9.0. I have since installed SUSE 8.1 and plan on staying with it. I am looking for the gane Frozen Bubble. Any help would be appreciated!

My parents have come to visit me for a week, for the holidays. In a attempt to get them to use linux, I loaded a laptop with Mandrake 9 and Frozen Bubble. They are addicted to the game. They play for hours! Anyway goto
Looks like you'll have to build it from source.

Yeah, that whole building it from source thing. I need to and want to learn how to, so any help figuring it out would be wonderful. It seems to have dependancy issues that are going to need to be addressed. I guess I should look for a how to on compiling!

Read the INSTALL and README files that are in the source tarball, the INSTALL file is usually a generic guide on compiling from source.

most of the SDL stuff is on your disks, you will need to download perl-sdl from and build and install that first.
