    Lightbulb Build Your Own Jeopardy

    BYOJeopardy (http://www.wolfescience.com/byojeopardy/) is a 'jeopardy-like board creator. BYOJeopardy helps you make custom boards that you can use in the classroom or play with friends.'
    Here are some screenshots: http://www.wolfescience.com/byojeopardy/screenshots.php

    It is great for use in the classroom, IMHO.

    I built a .deb of the latest version, for anyone that wants it.
    You can also grab the source from SF, if you'd rather build it yourself: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/b...ar.gz?download

    That looks really cool! I think I will try to use it in my freshman computer class. My wife's third graders would probably think its pretty cool, too! Thanks for the info.
    This looks nothing like my signature...

    I wonder if this will work on Hardy (Ubuntu 8.10). I found this program very useful. I wonder why it isn't already on the list of supported packages?

    Re: Build Your Own Jeopardy

    This is an excellent program. I am trying to install the latest version, byojeopardy-1.2.14, but it gives me an error:

    Code:
    configure: error: You don't have libxml-2.0 > 2.6.0 installed
    I'm wondering where I could get that missing file from, looking at Synaptic, it doesn't have that particular file.

    Re: Build Your Own Jeopardy

    do you have libxml2 and libxml2-dev installed? They are available on 64-bit 11.04. I'm not sure those are what you need. I'm guessing you noted that the thread is rather old.
