    Installing Games on Redhat 8.0.


    K I'm trying to install "Transfusion" on this new 8.0 that I just loaded today. I searched through some Docs and they say that I need to copy certain files to some locations like /usr/games
    When after I download the .zip from the game and browse to it File roller shows a few files in there that a .pak files. Where do I put these files and how do I get the game started?

    Thanx

    probably in /usr/games/transfusion
    you make the directory, put all the crap in there, then run `/usr/games/transfusion/transfusion.bin` or whatever the name of the executable is.

    you need to install stuff as the system admin account with `su - root` meaning: su = switch user, - = use a login shell, not a regular one (not really neccessary), root = the account you want to use. For more information on the su command `man su`
