Question arrg, last question for awhile, really this time


This is accually the same problem I had when I switched from Mac to Windows. I downloaded Nethack (I love that game) and ran the rpm, accually I ran 2 rpms. The site said redhat may not have q installed, whatever that is so they had nethack with qt. My question is, where the heck is it? I installed because when I run the rpm again it says package already installed. I ran a search and that found nothing. Thanks in advance for any help.

TC a.k.a Ultimate

If you're looking for the exec, on my machine nethack is in /usr/games (I'm running Mdk 9.1 so its probably the same for you)

You can also try

as root:
updatedb

then try

locate nethack (as root or other user)

Another possibility would be to use
the tools that come with your wicked
and evil packaging system :}

rpm -ql <net-hack-rpm-name> | grep bin

That shoudl spew out all executables for
that package...

Cheers,
Tink

The original nethack is (as far as I know,
I've never played it ;}) a console app, and
thus would have to be run in a terminal
window... but since you mentioned the QT
libraries I'd assume that you also have
a version with a graphical interface ...

It should be possible to invoke that from
a file-browser or a link you create on
your desktop or a taskbar-button...

Cheers,
Tink

Yeah, there is such an animal, but you would be better off just using a book like Running Linux or Linux In A Nutshell. It's really important to take on Linux on its own terms -- yeah, it's very natural to try comparing an unfamiliar thing to a familiar thing, but aside from the fact that Linux and Windoze are both operating systems, there's really not much to compare.
