Re: Dependency Hell
The lst time I ran into dependancy issues was when I first started playing AssaultCube on 10.04(?). Went to the website and grabbed the .deb and installed it, no issues reported. No issues until I tried playing the game. Started the game from the terminal and found out that it required newer versions of two libs. libopenal1 and libsdl-image1.2 it was. Looked them up in synaptic and got up and running. Haven't had that issue since at least 12.04. It's been a real pleasure watching Ubuntu and Linux in general maturing to the great systems that they are today. I only see it getting better from here on.
