Hello:

Open a terminal and log in as root using
su - ( the dash is important)

then type and enter
updatedb

When that is complete, type and post the output of

locate libssl.so.0.9.8

Hello:
Based on your last attempt to start the game
Quote:
$ ./crx.sdl
./crx.sdl: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Perhaps the existing soft link is broken ?

Open a terminal and log in as root using
su - ( with the dash)
then
cd /usr/lib
then
rm libssl.so.0.9.8

then create the soft link again
ln -s /home/newf/google-earth/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8

and give it a whirl again

Seve

Hello:

At the end of my rope here

It works just fine here ?

One more time for Jesus ...

Open a terminal and log in as root using
su - (the dash is important)

then

cd /usr/lib

then

rm libcrypto.so.0.9.8

then

ln -s /home/newf/google-earth/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8

If this doesn't work for you then I have no idea what is wrong as the game works fine here and should also work for you or anyone else.

By golly it works!! Thanks a bunch Seve i have a very cool looking game, that doesn't require online play, when i hit the oilpatch in a few more days.

I'll have to make a small donation to fedora, i've had some very nice support on here.

I don't believe you guys put "solved" in the title after someone gets something working, i seen it on ubuntu, probably be a good idea on here too, just a thought.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas.

Hello:

Okay, in advance of your next question of

How do I create a Menu Item for the Program ?

Using your file browser, browse to your /path/to/alienarena2007 directory and create a new file and name it alienstart

Then edit the file alienstart and add
#!/bin/bash

cd /path/to/alienarena2007/alienstart
./crx.sdl

Leave at least one blank line at the end, save and exit.

Then chmod +x /path/to/alienarena2007/alienstart

Type exit

Then, from an open terminal as user, type alacarte and add a New Menu item under Other / Games which points to

/path/to/alienarena2007

and you should be good to go.

Seve
