Bug Description

Binary package hint: ace-of-penguins

Running Lucid kernel 2.6.32-3. If I choose any of the ace-of-penguins games all I get displayed is a blank green window. Attached is a shot of the ace-canfield game. If I run ace-canfield from terminal no errors are displayed.

After a quick debugging session, it would appear that this version of libcards needs to be compiled without LDFLAGS="-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions"

Current CVS (http://www.delorie.com/store/ace/cvs.html) does not seem to exhibit this issue.

I've migrated the packaging to a CVS snapshot of ace (although upstream cvs is ... rather... almost dead?) and uploaded to my ppa:aaron-haviland/ppa. Upstream has made code changes that fixes (or avoids) this issue.

I suppose this isn't likely to get fixed in time for release now. :(

Just when I thought I'd found some nice games without lots of dependencies for a lightweight install....

Unfortunately, the fix appears to be for maverick only. :(

What do us Lucid users need to do to get it running on our systems?

I'd really like to have it as part of a lightweight install.

Ace of penguins was added to lubuntu for 10.10 I'm sure the devs will look into it for 10.04; but it *is* a new feature for Maverick.
