On fedora I had to install a good number of the SDL packages so my suggestion is any package, including 32bit and 64bit, with SDL in its name install them. If you tell the system to install them all it should clean up any conflicts.

Once I had the SDL packages installed the game works like a charm and its a very cool rogue game. Im enjoying it quite a bit.

You ever reach a full production etc you've got my cash. One nice feature though might be some sort of zoom, even if fixed, when in window mode.

Playing Flare v0.18 (downloaded from your main site - Flarerpg.org) on a 2008 Macbook Pro. However it's been crashing before I even get to the character select screen. Additionally, while messing with the graphic options, the game crashed and now refuses to start at all.
I've been able to player older versions of this game on this computer. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I donated on your main site, so thank you for the game!

Fixed it, I had version 0.15 still installed form the repos. Removing it solved all problems and my save even moved over from it to 0.17!
