INSTALLATION:First, make sure that you have the following packages installed:
tar xzf tuxkart-*.tar.gz cd tuxkart-*(where '*' is the version of TuxKart you downloaded - eg 0.4.0) ...and then:
You can run the game from the directory you downloaded it into - or (as 'root') you can install it into /usr/local/share/games/tuxkart by typing;
But it didn't work!Well, the most common (by FAR) reason for problems is that your OpenGL/Mesa is incorrectly installed - so before you complain to any of the PLIB or TuxKart mailing lists, first try running one of the example programs that comes with your OpenGL implementation - or one of the Mesa or GLUT sample programs.
If you those examples run OK - then go to the PLIB home page and download the PLIB examples.
If THOSE run correctly - but TuxKart doesn't then please get in touch with the TuxKart mailing list and we'll do our best to get you up and racing.
