    Depends: libopenal0a but it is not installable

    That package hasn’t been in Debian since Etch.

    Time for them to update the games dependencies.

    I installed through the Ubuntu Software Center in Lucid 10.04 and the game installed and launched with no trouble. You might try that.
    I previously added some game repositories, but I’m not sure how to check the origin of a package.

  • xraynorm

    This installs libopenal0a…0.8-7_i386.deb

    It works fine when installed

  • Simon

    tried installing from Ubuntu Software Centre and got the following:

    Package dependencies cannot be resolved

    This error could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable. Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.

    Anyone know what to do or try?

    Such love is often more profound and worthy of cherishing. I heard that men loves to give watches as gifts to women. Watches stand for time. And time is a great dealer, it can heals all wounds, sorrows, and dissolves all things. He who gain time gain everything. Time tries all things, of course , it can tries love between all of us. Therefore, watches plays a very important role in this part. For the rich men ,they always tend to buy [url=]Swiss Watches[/url] to their lovers. My parents loved each other at first sight and lived happily for 50 years. My father was romantic and humorous. The stories he told casually always added a lot of fun to our life.

    well, I just tried this with Ubuntu 11.04, and just adding the repo causes problems, seem Ubuntu has differed quite a bit from Debian repo-wise, the error said something about headers, for those who are looking for an easier time installing, try Playdeb here: I had to go here to get the game, good thing Playdeb packages this in an Ubuntu package instead of an Debian package (although I’m not sure if there’s a difference in the file)
