Hello,
Do any of you have interest in shell access to a Debian Sparc or Mac system to improve code portability? As is, the swr1fuss and fotefuss code doesn't compile on those. I know neither of them are popular platforms for muds, but it'd be a great way to find out where the code is lacking in portability.

As a builder I like to keep a copy of whatever I'm building for on a machine I own so I can try out weird ideas without blowing anything up that doesn't belong to me ;) So that's my personal stake in this. As I can't contribute code for bugfixes, I figured this might be something I can offer to those of you that share the goal of a solid reliable mud codebase being freely available.

Thanks!
Mootah

I would be more than willing to give it a shot to get SWR to compile on these system. If you would like to contact me, all my information should be in the profile on this forums.

While in the process of doing this, would you have a problem with me testing smaug at the same time? The fixes should be almost identical.

Yes, having access to both build environments would help a great deal and as Greven says, most fixes should apply to pretty much the entire Smaug family.

Hrm? Isn't it the same compiler? I'd be interested in knowing this as well!

I sent you a private message via the forums with the IP and auth info for SSH'ing into the Sparc/Debian system, as well as some information about what's installed, etc.

If you want to test smaug as well, feel free. Just do a quick "nmap localhost" before choosing ports so you don't inadvertently overlap something already running ;)

Yes, it's gcc

mootah@sun:~$ gcc --version
2.95.4


Debian supports eleven architectures which is one of the main reasons it's my distro of choice :smile:

2.95.4 is quite an old version. You may want to look at updating to a newer one.

Not a problem. I'm usually just doing ./configure , make, make install so I never noticed.

mootah@sun:~$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)
