I am using opensuse 11.4 KDE. Recently I tried to install some games from openSUSE Game Store (like Ardentryst, Bomberclone etc.). I tryed to install them using yast. But after the installation is complete, I’m unable to run the games.
The point is. You should ideally have chosen the 11.4 option rather than Factory.
You can look in the kde menu, via right click as if to edit the menu
Find the entry for the game and see what the command is to launch it, then use that in a terminal
Running the command in a terminal may reveal the problem with error output in the terminal
My apologies, it’s: rpm -qi and not rpm -ql. Well, I don’t really care what the game recommends because it’s not as simple as it looks like, when the game is built it gets hardcoded pythons magic number, so it needs to run on the very exact version of python it was built against.

Summary : Ardentryst
Ardentryst is an action/RPG sidescoller, focused not just on fighting, but on story, and character development. Strategy as well as reflexes will be needed to overcome the game. The game is set in another world. It is somewhat a cross between Donkey Kong Country, Mario, Castlevania and Kingdom Hearts. Ardentryst is focused on a fantasy world. The player is guided through a storyline which he or her must act in and play a major role in keeping peace and order in Ardentryst. It features two playable characters and a variety of weapons, items, armour, monsters, and beautiful level scenery and graphics.

Summary : Python Interpreter
Python is an interpreted, object-oriented programming language, and is
often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme, or Java. You can find an overview
of Python in the documentation and tutorials included in the python-doc
(HTML) or python-doc-pdf (PDF) packages.
If you want to install third party modules using distutils, you need to
install python-devel package.
It works fine now.
The problem was due to the wrong ymp file at openSUSE Game Store. The site is actually the opensuse game store; and many people will try to install from there because it support ‘1 click install’.
So someone please correct the file/link.

IMHO the most probably cause for all this is that rahulcvv had the games SLE_11 repo in his openSUSE_11.4 machine before trying to install the game. When he used the 1-Click the correct repo was added, but the rpm was installed from the wrong repo because of priorities/version numbers/whatever. But since he never posted the output of “zypper lr -d” we can’t know for sure.
There is a problem in the whole 1-Click system, sure. That’s not something new. It should install the RPM from the repo specified in the ymp file, but it is a problem in the system and not in the ymp file.
