      prboom.wad should be loaded automatically if it's in the right place.

      Try:

      prboom -iwad doom.wad
      or
      prboom -iwad doom2.wad

      Doom 2
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom2.wad", O_RDONLY) = 5
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom2.wad", O_RDONLY) = 5
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom2.gwa", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
      open("/usr/local/share/games/doom/prboom.wad", O_RDONLY) = 6
      open("/usr/local/share/games/doom/prboom.gwa", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such fi

      Doom
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom.wad", O_RDONLY) = 5
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom.wad", O_RDONLY) = 5
      open("/usr/share/games/doom/doom.gwa", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
      open("/usr/local/share/games/doom/prboom.wad", O_RDONLY) = 6
      open("/usr/local/share/games/doom/prboom.gwa", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

      Thanks for reply. I guess you assumed i knew a bit more about this, hehe.. Here's how for other clueless ones:

      My problem was only getting freedoom (like doom1) to play. I mistook the prboom as a doom2 was, but i guess its only some supportive engine file? You actually need to download doom2.wad if you yearn for Hell on Earth. Found it here: doom2wad.10001downloads.com

      My ~/.prboom/prboom.cfg  looks like:

      # Files
      wadfile_1                 "/usr/local/share/games/doom/doom2.wad"
      wadfile_2                 "/usr/local/share/games/doom/prboom.wad"
      dehfile_1                 ""
      dehfile_2                 ""

      I think you must have prboom.wad there too, but cant be bothered to check.

        Mine looks like this. The engine has a few default areas it looks in. The installer put prboom.wad where it needs to go. I ripped out freedoom and used my original disks to install doom.wad and doom2.wad

        # Files
        wadfile_1                 ""
        wadfile_2                 ""
        dehfile_1                 ""
        dehfile_2                 ""

      Since you're ripping stuff, maybe you could help some more?

      FreeDoom has a pretty nice mp3 in one of the beginning levels, maybe 3rd. Atleast it did in the Fedora8 rpm. Any easy way to rip this music out as mp3?

      Thanks.

        Use the DEU!

        DEUTEX that is.

        http://www.teaser.fr/~amajorel/deutex/

        I'm not sure if there is one that recognizes the mp3 lumps and can properly pull them out to the music or a separate mp3 directory.  If you use linux just use the file command to find and rename the files to mp3.
        I thought the uncompiled freedoom wad could be grabbed with whatever dev tool they used, something like git or subversion.
