Dungeons of Dredmore

Hi Guys,

Long time Linux user, just moved to OpenSuse for the awesome KDE integration compared to everything else.

Now, has anybody else tried to install Dungeons of Dredmore via the RPM from Humble indie Bundle? It keeps failing looking for mikmod, which nothing in OpenSuse provides (it just provides libmikmod).

Any way to get this fixed? I’ve never made an RPM before, but I figure creating a meta package that provide the “mikmod” dependancy, while itself depending on libmikmod may solve it.

Any thoughts?

Solved! Created 2 packages (i585 and x86_64) that create the mikmod depend using libmikmod. I’ll post them here for anyone who wants them.

dredmore-deps-0.1-1.i586.rpm
dredmore-deps-0.1-1.x86_64.rpm

I installed it on my 12.1 x86_64 system - as I recall, I installed
libmikmod and then did an rpm -i --force <rpm> to get it to install.

I checked and what it’s looking for is the version that’s provided, but
the naming is different (RPM is probably built from RedHat and uses a
different name as a result), but it runs OK on my x64 system with that
change.

I think I may put the files on the Dungeons of Dredmore site, or maybe the humble indie bundle forum, just in case. OpenSUSE did a lot of right with 12.1, and it deserves to get some glory from power users for it.
