#1 game starts - then ends abruptly


game starts with introductory theme, then abrutly
(about 1 minute) an 'end of game' message pops up and
the program closes. Sometimes it just crashes right at
the beginning when clicking new game. I have not manged
to play this game at all. Any ideas?

I downloaded/installed:

(as root)
1. dumb-0.9.2-fixed.tar.gz
# make
# make install

2. allegro-4.0.3.tar.gz
# ./configure
# make
# su -c "make install"

3. kraptor_final_jan_26_2003.tar.gz
# ./fix.sh linux
# ./fix.sh test
# make

4. # bin/kraptor_linux.bin

distro: Fedora core 1

I also added /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and
Tried various options like -windowscreen, -autoscreen.

I'm quite new to this and don't know what else to do -
as stated the program does startup, but seems I'm the
only one on the planet with this problem.

    I really don't have a clue of what is happening, but I'll
    try to help anyway.

    > # bin/kraptor_linux.bin
    Don't run it as root, run it as a normal user, if not, it
    may try to use hardware accelerated graphics and may crash
    (it happens to me :P).
    And, cd into the bin dir, so the game can find the datafiles.
    $ cd ~/kraptor/bin/
    $ ./kraptor_linux.bin

    Also, do the Allegro's tests/examples works?
    If they don't, then is a Allegro configuration problem, you
    will have to modify your allegro.cfg.
    Just to make sure, check allegro.cfg too. (You must copy it
    from Allegro's dir to your ~)
    Check for it, because it has many settings, put the ones
    that you find that suit best your system.

    Usually, the game runs better under X11, so you may want to
    try adding to ~/allegro.cfg this lines:

    system = XWIN
    gfx_card = XWIN
    gfx_cardw = XWFS

    > Sometimes it just crashes right at the beginning when
    clicking new game.

    Do you have some message of error on the console?
    If you do have, please show them to me.

    Well, I hope that this helps you.
    Good luck.
