Hi Casey,

Thanks a lot for the updates. I was able to install them today. I haven't found any issues yet except the distribution name. It shows "Debian GNU/Linux bullseye/sid".

Cheers,
Christian

Hi everyone!
I just added a game called R-Typo to the Fienix software repository. It relies upon a library called python3-pytmx that I also built and packaged, but I'm not completely sure it is packaged correctly. Could someone please try to install R-Typo and tell me if it works for you?
Thanks!

[quote="caseycullen"]Pidgin has IRC connectivity. If there is a specific client you'd like to use let me know.

I looked at Pidgin, but would rather have XChat or IceChat if available for linux. thanks.

I added HexChat, LostIRC, and XChat when I last updated the software repository.

There's a really fun game called Dr. Zome's Laboratory. It sort of reminds me of Plants vs. Zombies in a way, but it's still very original. I added it to the Fienix software repository. Give it a try!

These issues stem from Mono. I'm assuming this happened when trying to install Pinta, which depends on Mono. I thought I removed Pinta from the repository until the issue with Mono was resolved, but it must have been added again when I imported Debian updates.

Mono (and Pinta) are direct imports from Debian. I have not submitted a bug report to Debian yet. We could submit a bug report to Debian since Mono (and Pinta) are direct imports from them.

Or, we could try to build Mono from source (build instructions). If the problem still occurs we could submit the bug report directly to Mono (Mono Git Bug Report). They claim PowerPC is a supported platform (Mono Supported Platforms).

It will probably be a few weeks before I have a chunk of time I can sit down and do all this. If anyone wants to assist that would be fantastic. :)
