Description Alex Yacoub 2003-02-15 19:08:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
The game gnometris is not installed with gnome-games.  It is a standard part of
the upstream gnome-games package, and even some of the config files for
gnometris are included in the package on Red Hat.

These files are:
/etc/gconf/schemas/gnometris.schemas
/usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-gtetris.png
/var/lib/games/gnometris.scores

I think a tetris clone is an integral part of an Linux installation, and it is a
key point my efforts to convert people to Linux.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always

All Tetris clones are illegal, unfortunately.
Nothing we can do about it.
Comment 2 Sigge Kotliar 2005-12-03 18:30:26 EST
The Wikipedia entry on Tetris,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris#History_and_legal_issues states that "TTC no
longer seems to pursue "clones" of the game".

More so - RedHat (nowadays Fedora) ships no less than two tetris games for KDE:
ksirtris and ksmiletris, and if this was an issue the RedHat lawyers would have
heard about this by now.

So I say: enable Gnometris again for FC5. Would be a great addition!
