anybody know a good solotaire rpm for fedora 7? I liked the one in redhat 9. I have searched the repos I have and don't seem to find one.

thanks

pysol (ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/www.btree.org/linux/packages/fedora/6/i386/pysol-4.82-6.fc6.noarch.rpm) includes hundreds of versions of solitaire type games, include the 'usual' klondike variation. There is an optional sounds and sound-server package if you google around, but it's not necessary.

edit

hmm, that rpm don't work in f7, I must have installed from the source code, the source is available from here (http://www.edgy-penguins.org/non-geeks/moreapps/pysol.html)

Here's a pysol rpm (http://www.jbg.f2s.com/pysol-4.82.1-5.1.noarch.rpm) that works in F7, install using rpm -Uhv, and put an alias in ~/.bashrc, alias pysol='python /usr/share/games/pysol/pysol.py' to make launching the game easier.

Hmm, I just had another look and noticed that the gnome-games (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGames/) rpm includes Aisle Riot (Freecell Patience), which is actually really quite good, far better than the kdegames version, and contains dozens of variations making it comparable to pysol. and far easier to install
