Package: hex-a-hop
Version: 0.0.20070315-3
Severity: important


 Thanks for finding and fixing the endianness problem I reported earlier
- though, hex-a-hop still doesn't start on me.  It ends with this line:

Fatal error: Invalid file "/usr/share/games/hex-a-hop/graphics/font.dat"

 The corresponding lines from stracing it are:

write(1, "Reading binary file \"/usr/share/"..., 67Reading binary file "/usr/share/games/hex-a-hop/graphics/font.dat"
) = 67
open("/usr/share/games/hex-a-hop/graphics/font.dat", O_RDONLY) = 5
fstat64(5, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=42524, ...}) = 0
read(5, "Y\1\224\0\207\'\37\377l\1\0\0\3\3\3\3\207\'\37\0\3\3\3"..., 4096) = 4096
write(2, "Fatal error: Invalid file \"/usr/"..., 73Fatal error: Invalid file "/usr/share/games/hex-a-hop/graphics/font.dat"
) = 73
exit_group(0)                           = ?

 I'm not sure if that might also be endianness related so I'm not
suggesting looking in a specific direction this time. ;)

 So long,
