Newbie to running a server so please forgive me if this a stupidly easy issue to fix or if im just not following the directions. Anyways I picked up a codebase from mudbytes to tinker with on my free time on my linux desktop.(http://www.mudbytes.net/files/1720/)

Anyways I stared to follow the guide and it all is going smooth until I try to start the mud. For some reason when i try to lauch the compiled smaug file from the area folder(or the src) its not reconized:

(bash: ../src/smaug.exe: No such file or directory)

Any ideas on how to fix. Here is my whole process.

Since you seem to be using Linux (or Cygwin) then the executeable is "smaug" not "smaug.exe".

As in this line:


act_move.c.save  colorize.c   finger.h    in_room      planes.c     smaug

It's there so it should work. Try doing a "cd" to the "src" directory and running it there:


./smaug


It will complain about not having area files, but something should happen.
