Install on Asus EEE PC

Bro's got himself an Asus EEE PC and (naturally) wants to install bzflag on it. However, the standard "apt-get install bzflag" doesn't find it. Any advice on changes to sources.list for the approriate repository? Ta muchly.

set <color>radar "x y z" Thanks, that will be very useful. Is there maybe an equivalent for out-of-the-window coloring? (Yes, I know the gurus use just radar, but I'm not there yet).

Don't get snappy...

I didn't - I even smiled. :-)

Seriously though, if the distinction between red and green can be improved by client config alone - and not by running a modified source client - I'd very much like to hear about how. Thanks.

I think that in this case, the ~2.5% of the population for whom this is an issue are just fine accommodating themselves. So, you appear to think 50% of BZflaggers are female, and 100% of colorblind male BZflaggers are running modified clients. You're somewhere between "very wrong" and "totally delu...

I'd like to know what some of the stats fields mean. "Strength" for instance. I seem to have a big minus number, which is fair, 'cause I'm crap. But then I look up another player who appears to be a master on the server where I've seen them, and I see they have a a big minus number too. Me confused....
