Description matt050 2009-04-13 16:18:30 EDT
I downloaded the demo of world of goo (the rpm available here: http://worldofgoo.com/dl2.php?lk=demo )
When I try to install it, I have this error:

Error Type: <type 'exceptions.UnicodeDecodeError'>
Error Value: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 61: ordinal not in range(128)
  File : /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/rpmtrans.py, line 376, in callback

How reproducible:
Every time I try to install it

I think this one is over to PK - it looks like the yumbackend callback isn't coping with weird encodings
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2009-04-14 09:46:25 EDT
Matt, could you try Fedora 11 Beta live cd please, and tell me if it's fixed there. Thanks.

I just installed the http://worldofgoo.com/dl2.php?lk=demo .rpm version without issue.  Game runs fine.

matt050, are you still seeing this error? If so, have you tried Richard's suggestion?

I'll wait for the F11 release and try to install it again.
Comment 5 matt050 2009-06-12 13:41:49 EDT
I upgraded my OS to Fedora 11 and now it's installed :- )
Comment 6 Bart van den Heuvel 2012-03-07 05:07:38 EST
Just installed World of Goo on Fedora 16.
It did install properly in /opt however it did not start.

Copy'd (as root) some libs from lib64. Now it works. Game on!

cd /opt/WorldOfGooDemo/libs64
cp /usr/lib64/libvorbis.so.0
cp /usr/lib64/libvorbisfile.so.3 .
cp /usr/lib64/libSDL-1.2.so.0 .
cp /usr/lib64/libogg.so.0 .

(Adding this to the old bug because it showed up in my Google search)
