            Try adding the "struct" word before the "flock" work.

            Re: Still problems in hi-scores
            I think you are using the precompiled binary, are you?
            The problem with this binary is that it saves the high scores file in the user home directory (ie each user has full access to its own high scores file).

            You can solve this problem by installing from sources. Before building the program, you should edit the Makefile (look for installprefix, HIGH_SCORES_FILE and EXE_GROUP variables). Mail me if you need help.

            Or you can install Debian and use the .deb file. :-)
