Request: Old games

Post by froh » Tue Apr 11, 2006 20:26

What about making installers that provides libraries for the old Loki (and others) games that need ancient libc and sdl libraries. Games like Civilisation Call to power and Hopkins FBI doesn't work out of the box on modern distros. This is frustrating for people used to Windows XP's pretty decent backwards compatibility for games. I know Gentoo has ebuilds that does this, but what we need is statically linked stuff that works everywhere.
