Vegastrike from RPM


Has anyone figured out how to get vegastrike fully working from the RPM? If so, could you give me the version of the RPM that you used or what you had to do to change it to get it to work, etc. I'm pretty sure the RPM that I used (through the contrib source for Mandie 10.2) installed some things incorrectly. For example, the script that is used to start the program, vegastrike.sh, calls on binaries that weren't even installed by the RPM, vssetup. Seems like something MUST be wrong. If anyone has had luck, please let me know. If not, I'll probably use their installer. (I'd like to use the rpm for the ability to easily do a clean uninstall and have it show up in whereis and stuff like that. Plus it just seems cleaner to do as much as possible by rpm.)

Yes, I know those sites. However, there are (I believe) 4 RPM versions of this program available or more for Mandriva. Each install is about 200 MB. Adding up that's about 800 MB to try which on a slow DSL connection will take me probably a couple days to download. That's a lot of time to invest when I'm not sure if any of them are going to work. Just trying to see if someone actually HAS gotten it working via RPM.

Give it a day or so, and if no answer
ask one of the mods to move this thread over to

Thanks floppy.

It's really not that important to tell you the truth as the vegastrike program has a fairly good installer itself. It's not really a general software issue as the problems are with the Mandriva version of the rpm specifically and not the vegastrike program in general. I just thought I'd post here, give it a few days to see if anyone had gotten it working, then if I don't get a response I'll use their installer. No biggie. Thanks for the responses though.
