Description Wart 2006-03-11 20:48:48 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Freely distributable game files for Doom.  This is an alternative set of game files to replace the shareware game files for Doom.

This package has a hard requirement on prboom in the .desktop file which is reflected in the Requires tag.  This will eventually be changed to require 'doom-engine' so that it can be played with alternate doom engines.  Note that this introduces a circular dependency where freedoom Requires prboom, and prboom Requires freedoom.

Comment 1 Wart 2006-03-11 20:50:44 UTC
Adding Hans to cc: per his request.

Comment 2 Wart 2006-03-14 00:07:35 UTC

Concedering the procedure for doom wads we agreed on this is no longer true.
