The game to work :)
I'm thinking this may have more to do with a broken SDL library / dependancy.

You might want to make sure you aren't missing anything on your system. The
easiest way to figure that out is to install the yum-utils package, then run
If it doesn't report any broken dependencies, the problem still may not be with
supertux. It could be in one of the libraries it requires.
Evidently, it isn't that.
$ sudo package-cleanup --problems
Setting up yum
Reading local RPM database
Processing all local requires
No problems found
As to a required package being broken... I have a friend who also has supertux
(and all its requireds), we both run updates overnight, his works, mine don't
:). But I have talked to another person with the same problem as myself, it's
not a freak occurance.
It just about has to be a missing dependency.
I'll work on trying to reproduce the problem.
Can you install FC5 from CDs into vmware or a spare machine or somesuch, and
then install supertux? That should reproduce it pretty easily.
Working on it (in a xen guest actually).
Same here on a machine (which is up to date) with everything (minus GFS bits)

I just noticed that the FC5 build doesn't appear to have OpenGL support, so I'm
going to try enabling that to see if it makes a difference as soon as the build
servers are back up.
Try 0.1.3-5.fc5 please. (It is in the needsign queue. Hopefully it will get
pushed out soon.)
If it doesn't Just Work, try running it with --opengl.
0.1.3-5.fc5 works here. As far as I'm concerned, this is resolved.
For me too. Changing resolution to ERRATA (WORKSFORME is for unreproducible bugs).
