What works, what doesn't, and how to fix it.

Since there are so many issue with the games I'm going to try and keep a list of all the programs that worked for me including the ones that needed changed or run from the command line or if I was just missing a library.

Since I'll need to update it I'm going to host it on my site. You can see it here.

Welp, I finally dusted off my linux install and got the 3d accelerated drivers.. For the list, Eugman - To get KidBandyhootsCrazyAdventures, the Blancmange game working lib/glengine.py needs lines 36,37 updated to remove the 32 bit depth.
self.screen=display.set_mode((gs.xres,gs.yres),(FULLSCREEN * Engine.isFullScreen)|self.modeFlags,32)


self.screen=display.set_mode((gs.xres,gs.yres),(FULLSCREEN * Engine.isFullScreen)|self.modeFlags)

It starts up on ubuntu dapper after that.
This will probably impact the judging, but, eh.. C'est la PyWeek :)
Thanks for starting up a list!
Got most of them done so far. I still need to get the last few and then add all the fixes I can find.
I know I'm double posting but if you have fixes or patches you want me to add you can email me at suggestions@eugmanhome.com
Hi eugman, Sry about the weird keys... but did not have time to make a full menu, so i used the in game message box as the menu itself. I thought the menu would not be such big a deal. Thank you for your comments :) I know i would have been frustrated with such key combination too but... i hope the game itself compensates for that :D
You have TBS and faraway listed as giving errors on "Plane2DJoint" with PyODE 1.1.
Updating to PyODE 1.2 will fix this.
For the SDAFF entry Escape From Robot Planet, you will need Boost 1.33.1 if you are running Linux. Here is how to install it:

For Debian users: "emerge boost" will do the trick

For Ubuntu users: "apt-get install libboost-date-time-dev libboost-date-time1.33.1 libboost-dev libboost-doc libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-filesystem1.33.1 libboost-graph-dev libboost-graph1.33.1 libboost-iostreams-dev libboost-iostreams1.33.1 libboost-program-options-dev libboost-program-options1.33.1 libboost-python-dev libboost-python1.33.1 libboost-regex-dev libboost-regex1.33.1 libboost-signals-dev libboost-signals1.33.1 libboost-test-dev libboost-test1.33.1 libboost-thread-dev libboost-thread1.33.1" will install the necessary packages.

openSUSE 10.2 comes with Boost 1.33.1 packages, they just need to be installed from the DVD or online source.

Fedora Core 5 & 6, have Boost 1.33.1 packages available online, too.

Hopefully this fixes it for all the Linux users out there.
