tuxracer cannot find data files and quits

Description of problem:
tuxracer fails to find data files and quits
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
installed from fedora core 1 disks
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select tuxracer from games menu
2. or type 'tuxracer' into terminal
3. window will blank, then return stating data files not found (if
you used the terminal).
tuxracer fails to start
The rpm installs tuxracer to /usr/share/tuxracer but the program
expects to find its data files in /usr/share/games/tuxracer. Either
changing the config, moving the data files to /usr/share/games (which
did not exist on my system) or making a symlink from
/usr/share/games/tuxracer to /usr/share/tuxracer does the trick.
I've extensively tested tuxracer in FC1 and FC2 and can't duplicate this
sorry, i cannot reproduce it in FC1, FC2 and FC3. it works for me
After seeing these comments I had a "duh." When doing a new install I
usually copy over various ~/.files, one of which is a .tuxracer/ that
started somewhere in prehistory.
So I looked and sure enough it indicates the directory for the
datafiles, which is not the same as that chosen by Fedora. My blunder;
sorry for the bogus report.
"Works for me too, now"
