My apologizes for not finding the correct readme. How embarrassing that I have yet to find this readme. Could you point me to it's location. I found only the one hosted on smaugmuds.org
and the one in the at ~/afkmud/doc/.
Thanks for the help ayuri. I knew I had read something like that somewhere but I have been unable to find it again.
Surely there is something else I am not understanding. I tried the command: "./startup &" and received this error"
"bash: ./startup: /bin/csh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory"
I ran this from the src directory and both startup and startup.sh exist there.
Nevermind. Found the answer to that here
I had this exact problem, you need to get the c shell
go to terminal, and type these exact lines
sudo apt-get install tcsh
sudo apt-get install csh
that should sort it all out
But that wasn't all. ^M: Command not found. Ran a search on the forum and found this here
Try running unix2dos on it or something.
Only what fixed it was running dos2unix. I did this on both startup and startup.sh. But I think the idea was correct: something to do with windows text formating.
So now I enter ./startup & and get:
so at this point I don't know if it is running or what.
