No Supertux in 4.1? :( [Solved]

Post by farfnarf » Thu May 28, 2009 20:13

I know so little about getting packages not in the Spritz Package Manager utility, or not available by typing "emerge supertux" in the su command line (got an error message saying, "there are no ebuilds to satisfy supertux").

Can somebody point me to a download that works for this distro? The supertux wiki has a gentoo download, is that one ok? And if so how do I install it?

You should probably familiarize yourself with entropy the package manager. --
http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php?title=En:Entropy
you should use equo and sulfur instead of emerge.

because when I run a search it comes right up

Code: Select all

Thank you both.

I am so time-constrained that I have precious little time to dig around much; although I certainly do understand the merit in researching before posting a query in forums. It is a bit of a tough call each time.

As it is, I will make the efforts pointed out here by both of you as soon as I have time for that, likely this Sunday.

With thanks again to you,

It was a simple matter of going to the link provided and upgrading to equo. It took a few minutes of following simple, well spelled out instruction.

After that I used equo to install Supertux. :oops:

Thanks for putting up with at question and for posting that link to the equo page, which I read thorougly and bookmarked.

As you get time you should check out the rest of the wiki the link is at the top of every page. There is a lot of good and useful information in it and it is organized well too. And yes, I do understand, sometimes even I can't find what is right under my nose :p
