Description of problem:
No real bug, but I installed the package, because I thought it was a game as it says in the summary. It is not. It is a a game engine. So maybe you should change the summary.
PS: Is this the wrong place to report such a “bug”? Where else?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I started pirut searching for some games.
2.I saw the summary, saying that it is a game and installed it.
3.I was disappointed.
I was disappointed. :-)
A nice game…
You are right the sub-package raydium of maniadrive seems to have a wrong
summary, but the maniadrive package itself, is a nice game.
So if you installed this through add/remove programs you should have gotten both
maniadrive, the game, and raydium, the engine behind the game.
If you did install it through Pirut and did not get the game, then thats very
strange, maybe Pirut got confused because both the game (package name
maniadrive) and the engine (package name raydium) have the same Summary, but
comps.xml (which driver Pirut) points to the maniadrive package.
Either way, to really get maniadrive the game, do:
su -c "yum install maniadrive"
Note that if you have an ati r300 / r400 (9700 / 9800 for example) card using
the opensource driver, that there currently is a bug in Mesa which causes
maniadrive to be unplayable on these cards (unless you use the closed source
drivers amd provides).
And I'll go and fix the summary of the raydium sub-package now.
1.2-5, which has the raydium Summary fixed, should show up in tomorrow's

Thank you. I triet the game Maniadrive – it’s really nice. ;-) I have a Nvidia
Geforce 256, so no problems unless it’s a little bit slow…
