“apt-get install love” – what more do we need?

Going over the NEW queue, I found a package named “love”. The first things I could think about is the line “apt-get install love” and the related jokes.

Seems that the love package won’t do what you think it will do, as the ITP says:

ITP: love — easy game development framework based in Lua and OpenGL

I don’t have any idea what do people think when they name their project with such a name… But good luck with the framework.

  1. In a time of war, there’s nothing more than this little who** named “love” 😉

    I think someone should check if this framework is made with LOVE 🙂

  2. love is already stuck in the NEW queue: http://ftp-master.debian.org/new/love_0.4.0-1.html
    The program is actually called LÖVE, but given that one can’t use 8bit characters in package/program names this approach was taken. 🙂

    If you want to be one of the earlybirds giving it a try, Baby has packages ready already on her alioth website: http://alioth.debian.org/~miriam/love/

    Kinda reminds me of the old libove.so library, that in order to link to, you should have used the -l switch like this:
    gcc -love …

  4. Also, there’s a kde program called ‘amor’ which means love in spanish 😛

    I entered “love” in my terminal today and i was told that love was not currently installed and all i had to do was to sudo apt-get install love.

    Now i cant stop smiling.
