    hi there,

    I've just downloaded a game that requires x11 (freeciv). since I am running 10.4.11, I also had to download and install x11. I managed that, but now I am confused as to how to get the game to run. can someone explain to me in straightforward terms how to open the game. I've tried just clicking on it, but it shuts down straight away.

    Thanks for your time,

    X11 is on your System Restore disc if it were not pre-installed.

    As for freeciv, it is not a trivial installation. The top hit on Google is here.
