So i'm brand new to linux.

I've had no experience with it at all and have just installed andLinux since I heard that it is better to work with than Cygwin. Now I was wondering exactly how do i go about compiling something with andLinux? I want to use SWR so I would appreciate any step by step walkthroughs that someone can offer, which would include:

Do I need to download and install GCC still? Is it a program or just a command prompt like cygwin? Do they act the same way, meaning do they both use the same commands? Once I have it ready, what commands would I use to compile the work? What if I want to gut the area files or change spells?

Any help is appreciated.

Contrary to what some have said, I'm not sure that andLinux is actually the best choice for people who know nothing at all about Linux. Cygwin is a gentler introduction, and there are many more guides specifically related to MUDs and Cygwin. Furthermore, I know of only one person around here who uses andLinux, and very many who use or have used Cygwin, so you're more likely to get questions answered about Cygwin.

Sorry to not have a more productive answer; I just don't know how andLinux works. Yes, you probably need to install gcc; I'm not sure how you do that in andLinux. Presumably there is some kind of package manager. gcc is a program that runs in the andLinux command environment. Like I said I just don't know how it works; the best I have are guesses based on my Linux knowledge in general. :smile:

Well maybe you can help me with this Cygwin issue then.

I compiled SWR 1.2 just fine but when I load it some things work, some don't, and when it loads I get a bunch of BUG's and it's saying "NULL room! Putting [name of char] in limbo <2>" and it does this for a long time. I don't assume this is supposed to happen. Each NULL NPC line takes a few seconds to continue. All I did was compile and run. No changes, no additions, nothing.

This is why I wanted to try andLinux.

It would be a lot better for my sanity to have the same question only in one place at a time... :wink:

You can run andLinux if you want, it's just that you'll have a different set of problems. That's kind of the learning curve for this work in general, I suppose. I imagine that it's not that different from any other Linux distribution, it's just that personally I don't know any specifics about it and can only point you to their website and the documentation available there.

Folks, this whole cross-posting of issues between two sites is getting absurd. It makes it hard if not impossible to follow the progress toward a solution and frankly it' a waste of everyone's time to have to bounce from link to link to try and help. Please pick one place or the other to ask your questions and get the help you need. Kayle has already mentioned this himself but it seems nobody paid attention. Do we really need to start locking threads to prevent it?

I'm brand new to this board so I didn't realize they were connected (even though I should have noticed David's name).

I took the hint though.

No.. Hmm. I'll sleep on it methinks.

I started using cygwin but on the recommendation of a few people, moved over to andLinux. For me, the biggest hurdle was getting it installed and working. After that, I've found it's a lot easier to handle than cygwin.

To install anything in andLinux, look in your system tray for the andLinux launch menu. Use the program called Synaptic, it will open up a list of all the packages available. Simply find GCC, check all the relevant boxes, and hit apply. It will download and install it for you. To use it, either use terminal/Konsole, depending on which install of andLinux you did. From there it operates almost identical to cygwin.
