PROJECTS ON THE MOVE

Article from Issue 54/2005
Author(s):

The well-known Suse configuration program Yast 2 will be helping Debian users in future. And if you are looking for a way to relax after finishing your system administration chores, check out “Battle for Wesnoth.”

It has been quite a while since “Projects on the Move” talked about a game. The reason for this hiatus is the lack of new and interesting games for Linux. To atone for this lapse, we will focus this month on a role-playing game called The Battle for Wesnoth (Figure 1). The Battle for Wesnoth is lean enough for older hardware, and it provides an interesting design that more than makes up for the lack of sophisticated 3D graphics. I’ll also talk about Debian’s efforts to incorporate Yast 2, and I’ll describe the SSHFS file system. I’ll close with an update on Debian Sarge.
