After All That Work

After installing Tux Racer from an old src.rpm, I ran yum update to check the status of my other RPMs. (In particular, I wanted to see if Firefox 1.5 had moved from the Fedora Core development tree. It hadn't.) I was then told that yum was going to replace Tux Racer with Penguin Planet Racer. This is a newer Open Source version of Tux. Apparently the original Tux went from Open Source to commercial, so this is what's left behind. It's pretty much the same game, of course.

For those playing along with yum, make sure you have the Fedora Extras repository enabled, then do

yum install ppracer

wish someone would have told me that.
