Sorry people: Although having searched for Micropolis in the bugs, I couldn't find this one and filed  Bug #316824:
as a duplicate!

These are the essential informations from the oder bug:

[Quote]The rebranded original source code had some quirks and had to be
adapted to current Linux infrastructures. Michael Gernoth adaped and
patched the code to get it running next to flawlessly on current
machines. A site with the current code can be found here:
http://alanbshepard70.googlepages.com/micropolis.html . I attached the
source code below.

Please don't use Don Hopkins' original source code, since that will
reintroduce a lot of bugs![/Quote]

And from Ansgar Burchardt:

There is already a package maintained by the Debian Games Team waiting in Debian's NEW queue.
The source code was downloaded from [1], but has some patches applied. See debian/patches in the SVN repository used for micropolis[2].
