I cannot install World of Goo on Fedora 18:

# yum install WorldOfGooSetup.1.41.rpm
begins but then I have:

Error control transaction:
/usr/bin installing WorldOfGoo-1.41-1.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64

It looks like the RPM package is malformed.
It tries to create the folder /usr/bin (for instance).
The package should be fixed in order to avoid this.

You can look which folder/files are created with the command:
$ rpmls WorldOfGooSetup.1.41.rpm
which is part of the "rpmdevtools" package.

There have been lots of people that have problems with running WoG on Linux, this seems to be a working solution.

This is just a packaging problem. When manually decompressed the game works fine.
