10.5. Games

Playing games under Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a fun way to pass the time.

Game availablity depends on the variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux you installed. You must have those game packages installed before they appear under the Applications => Games menu. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux System Administration Guide for details on installing additional packages.

To start a game, click Applications => Games and select the game of your choice. Figure 10-7 shows a fun game for kids of all ages called Same GNOME. In this game you point your mouse at matching marbles until they start to spin; then, you can click them to make them disappear. The object of the game is to make all the marbles disappear.
