    wine is the application to install to execute programs residing on the
    doze partition(s).

    It is possible to install windows in a Linux virtual environment
    http://vmware.com

    A quick check in the package list for Sodokan did not return any hits.

    Check the list at www.winehq.org to see if they are known to run.

    # urpmf sokoban|grep bin/
    kdegames:/usr/bin/ksokoban
    kdegames4:/opt/kde4/bin/ksokoban

    Once again KDE has bitten an experienced user by renaming every freaking
    thing with a "k". YAR to dislike KDE.
