Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 215278
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
The wargames script, part of the bsd-games collection, searches for the user's
input in /usr/games/, and if found, executes it. All game binaries are now
located in /usr/bin, however, so no matter what one types one gets back the
A strange game.
The only winning move is
not to play.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Type in the name of a bsd-games binary
Game not launched
After taking a closer look at this 'game', I'm not sure it should even be
included. It's just a launcher for other games that are already in the user's PATH.
I'm going to 'fix' this by removing wargames from this package.
It is quite humorous, though. Can't you leave it in, but change it so it checks
that the name typed matches one of the game installed by bsd-games?
Since all of the bsd-games are installed in /usr/bin, it would require rewriting
the logic in wargames to filter only on games from bsd-games. I could instead
have it operate on anything in /usr/bin, instead of /usr/games, but I'd really
prefer just to remove wargames.
'wargames' has been removed for FC6 and rawhide.
