2008-11-22 15:49:39 Guillaume Martres extremetuxracer: statusexplanation Hi, what is the result of dpkg -l|grep -E "(extremetuxracer|etracer)" ? The version in intrepid (0.4-1ubuntu1) contains a symlink to handle this: ls -l /usr/share/games/etracer lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-08-27 22:12 /usr/share/games/etracer -> extremetuxracer
