For anyone looking for something to do, 0 A.D. seems to be something worth
It is similar to Age of Empires (which also makes it a bit like Empire
Earth, but it is a lot closer to Age of Empires).
It is still alpha, but getting it into Fedora might get them some more
testing and possibly contributors.
With one very small fix to get it to build with gcc 4.7 (which I reported
to upstream 0 A.D., though it's really an nvtt issue), I was able to
The game includes a few bundled libraries we don't have in Fedora
(at least nvtt and spidermonkey) and uses a more recent version of
enet than we have. Some of these may only be needed to develop for the
game and not to actually play it. I haven't looked to carefully at this.
I'll probably do some chipping away at some of the prerequisites, but
have other games to work on, so it won't happen very quickly.

There has been a lot of good things happening with OpenGL (and OpenCL)
support in the free video drivers over the last several months. By the
time Fedora 18 comes out it looks good for full or as full as we can
legally provide OpenGL 3.0 support for the majority of the available
We just got sumwars. Red Eclipse will likely be in the repos in a week
or two. 0 A.D. looks to be a very promising game. With some effort we
could have it in Fedora by the time F18 comes out and the game will
possibly be changing from Alpha to Beta around that time.
Thanks to the effort of Martin Preisler sumwars is now packaged in Fedora.
It's currently available in rawhide, F16 testing and F17 testing.
Martin also worked with upstream to make the game more easily packagable.
Hello, I'm in the process of packaging the game Red Eclipse for
Fedora (bug #800930), but in order for Red Eclipse to not bundle the
Enet lib, it needs to be updated from 1.2 to 1.3 in Fedora (bug #739313
). There seems to currently be only one package depending on
enet/enet-devel in Fedora, which is egoboo, which does FTBFS on an
updated Enet (bug #799778).
Updating the packaging for Enet to 1.3 seems to be trivial (bump
version, re-download, changelog), and I have created a patch for
Egoboo which fixes the FTBFS and allows *launching*. I have not
tested *running* the game with the patch applied (would be great if
someone with graphics acceleration in Fedora could test ;).
The current maintainer of both Egoboo and Enet seems busy and has not
had time to update Enet since a request was filed in Sep 2011. And
did, at least earlier, say that it would be fine if another proven
packager took care of it.
Also worth noting is that Egoboo is outdated in Fedora 2.7.5 vs upstream
2.8.1, however this update may introduce (if it's not already there) a
bad movement key bug, making it pretty much unplayable on Linux, and
I don't think there's a proper beta release for GNU/Linux beyond this..
I'd like to know how I'd best go about fixing Enet so that I may be able
to get Red Eclipse into Fedora, are there any proven packagers around
that may be willing to update Enet and add this patch to Egoboo?

Quake3 (the game engine used for Urban Terror) is free and we have that. The
data for Urban Terror is not free (the last I heard).

It is sort of there. You can download the data and play it with quake3.
Quake3 even has a helper to download at least one data set (though I
am not sure whether Urban Terror is in that list).
Dear friends, one of the best games in the style UrbanTerror CounterStrike
besides being free, is available in the Fedora repositories, and runs on
and Windows, because he was off the list?
