I recently changed from Ubuntu to Fedora 17; On the Ubuntu OS I had no problem simply running The Powder Toy with the Autorun promot. But now that I have switched to Fedora i cannot seem to get it to run or to find any real information on how to do so. I found this link in the forum -forums.fedoraforum.org/archive/index.php/t-246900.html- but the information there does not seem to work and is not really informative.
I have also gone through the process with the Wiki page, again no help. -the-powder-toy.wikispaces.com/Building+in+Linux-
I have downloaded the copy from "facialturd" at the repository center (FacialTurd-The-Powder-Toy-build183-0-gfc3bc43.zip), but my system cannot find "build-essential" (but I believe that is debian), libbz2-dev, or libsdl1.2-dev.
i did try installing the zfstream form the other thread, but no-go.
Any help, please? Powder Toy is my late night fix.
