Trying to get Hearts installed on FC-6 using gnome desktop. I'm only into FC-6 for a couple of days.
Downloaded the 0.1.3 tar - extracted it.
The Readme says to bootstrap the package first with no explanation on how to do that.
It's been very frustrating for me with "zero" linux-anything background. I can kill anything in MS Windows problem-wise, but it seems that one has to be a Linux programmer to get anything done, and spend countless minutes keystroking.
Took me three hours to figure out a plug-in for Mozilla; Tried for three hours to get Totem-xine to play a wmv file, still to no avail. Been trying for two hours just to research on bootstrapping a package BEFORE I can install it, which is another lesson in hundreds of keystrokes.
I am terrified that one of my customers is going to ask for a Linux server (some flavor) (I'm trying to just break ground with Ubuntu, Suse, and Fedora) - and Paul is going to look like an idiot.
In Windows, you double-click a download - say OK - and it's done.
These Linux O/S's seem robust enough and very secure - and you're not going away. You're getting more market share every week. MS took notice, and is involved with Suse I believe, so the future is set.
This above-average Windows techie is completely humbled inside of the Linux community. It's like banging one's head against the wall to get anything done. My feeling is, if you guys want to bring millions and millions of middle-of-the-road Windows junkies in, things have to be a lot easier.
Now that I've vented my ass off, can I get this card game off the ground?
