I know, I know, mandriva is just not hype anymore..

Thanks. Well, I can't remember how I first tried sdl-perl. I surely
don't like/use cpan a lot, so I am not sure if it wasn't packaged as
an RPM in mandriva before I started developing FB. But surely what I
remember is that I spotted a few bugs in sdl-perl when developing FB
:) And also what I remember is that for the sake of installing/playing
FB, a lot of persons had to install/package sdl-perl, something they
really never heard of.
