I find that Puppy has no Mahjongg pkg available.
Here is one of the better versions of Mahjonng.

Hi koolie,

actually there's a few available:


http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=8811 Shanghai

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=8579 xshisen

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4826 xmahjongg

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=463427861&t=23086 mahjongg using the allegro library

I'm surprised that there's no SDL version AFAIK. Some of the above are perhaps a bit dated, but they should all work. The shanghai version, for some reason, as mentioned in another post, chews up 50% of cpu time. I was wondering if it was due to it's using xbm images, and was toying around with trying a different format, but never got around to it.

Also i'm sure most dos versions would run quite acceptably via dosbox. And there was a post, from a forum member who's mom was addicted to some windows mahjongg version, and he finally reported success in getting it to run in puppy, via wine.

Hi muggins,

Actually I was meaning that there are no PUP or PET pkgs.

Not everyone is comfortable with archives.

Cheers

koolie,

as you've already noticed, I've added an xmahjongg.pet to this thread:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4826

I thought I'd place a note here, just for cross-reference porpoises.

With regard to the others listed above, Mu has a .pup for xshisen here:

For shanghai, I'm still unhappy with it's cpu usage, for such a tiny application, so will leave that for the moment, unless you want to play around with it.

cheers
