well im sorry if im taking no self responsibility but as ive said before i havent used linux before and so i find these things hard to understand and the reason im asking you guys is so they could possibly explain it to me

also, ive gotten used to windows doing everything for me, on linux theres command lines and everything, ok theres a few easy things but for the most part, its complicated, or it seems that way at least, i dont wanna start an argument or anything, i was merely asking

ive looked at the installation documentation and it just tells me to do the yum thing, i dont know how to compile it, or whether that would be the best thing could you maybe refer me to documentaion for that or tell me how to do it with out yelling at me for not understanding it as much as you?

heres the link to the page: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3 <-- this is a link to the search page, i couldnt actually get a link to the search results :(, anyway, when i was there i typed exactly 'mana world'

All but the first four can be ruled out because they are old versions of TMW.

Two are for 64 bit processors (x86_64) and two for 32 bit processors (i386). When in doubt use the 32 bit package, because 64 bit systems can execute 32bit code but not the other way around. But when you are sure that you have a 64bit system you can use the 64bit package.

So depending on your processor there are two packages left, one for fedora 11 and one for fedora 10. I suggest trial and error.

Finally, theres a good solution to playing TheManaWorld on an Acer Aspire One:

Linux4One v1.00 stable has been released --> http://linux4one.it
Features:
* Personalized kernel
* Reduced Boot times (even with SSD)
* Functioning hardware from the start, including SD readers and wireless led
* Minimum disk writing (log. etc.) to preserve duration
* Various optimizations to enhance the system's reaction times
* Netbook Remix Interface
* Italian and English language (other languages will be added as well)
* Based on ubuntu 8.04.2 LTS ( 3 year support) resulting in repository access
* Kernel 2.6.28, Openoffice 3, Netbook manager 0.7 and VLC with codecs
So...get rid of the crappy Linpus Linux and install tmw with the kronos-Scripts :)

You can download the sourcecode of the latest stable version (0.0.28.1) from http://themanaworld.org/downloads.php

Getting the latest development snapshot from Git is only recommendable when you are adventurous because it might include experimental but buggy features or might even not work at all.

Have a look in the file INSTALL in the source package.
There is a list of packages u need to have installed (the -devel versions of the packages)

in the source folder, open a terminal and type `./configure`

if this script returns no missing packets, run `make`
this compiles the client and can take some time.
after its done, type `sudo make install` and give the root password.

then you can start the new client with `/usr/local/bin/tmw`
if you want to create a desktop icon, you find a symbol in /usr/local/share/pixmaps/

You are missing a Compiler in your system. Search for a package called like build-essentials and install it first.

edit: Attaching the log was right action ;)

First off, you'll need to install the compiler (g++).
