I am trying to setup LPMUD to run on a shell I was recently given access to.

Could someone help me out or be gracious enough to do it for me?

Thanks a ton!

Could you give some details on what you're having trouble with? What driver, mudlib, etc? What part of the setup process has you stumped?

I don't think you'll find anyone to do it for you, but this would be a good place to detail the steps involved in the setup of an LPMUD. Let's try to keep the discussions as broadly applicable as possible =).

I would much rather have the general setup. I have a coder willing to work on the codebase once I have it installed correctly.

The objective is to install LPMUD to a shell.

It would be helpful if you could specify what driver and mudlib you are using as well as what exactly you are having trouble with. Failing that you could perhaps try asking your coder, one would assume he or she would know how to get things up and running.

I have the LPMUD base, I believe, in tar.gz format.

From this point, how do I install it on to the shell?

What you have there is a compressed archive of files, so the first step is to unpack them. I'll assume it's called lpmud-1.0.tar.gz, although it probably isn't.

Code:
tar -zxf lpmud-1.0.tar.gz


You should hopefully have a new directory, called something like lpmud-1.0. If not you may have a bunch of files in your current directory. You should look for a file called README or INSTALL which should have further instructions. To read a text file you can open it in a text editor such as vi or pico.

Now to get my access to the shell working. I'll keep my questions here.

Alright, I suck with Linux commands. I've got the shell open and ready. Step by step, I need instructions on creating the directories and installing the components.

Whew, unpacked and now I'm going through finding a mudlib.

Found the mudlib, but "make install" gives a ton of errors.

If you need help with compilation errors then post the exact errors you get and someone may be able to help you. It would also help to know exactly which driver and mudlib versions you are trying to compile.

Any particular reason you are using an LPMud driver that is 13 years old?
No that won't be compiling on a modern system with gcc 3.x without extensive changes.

It was the newest I could find. Let me do some more digging then. I didn't realize that that was so old.
