Ok, I am wanting to get a DBS Code to run locally so I can learn how to build/code on it and I have no idea how. I was reading around some and installed cygwin but I don't know what else I will need to get it started. If there isn't any other software I need to install to get the MUD to run, great. I have no idea what I need to type in cygwin in order to get the MUD to start a server so I can log into it locally... Yea, I am a total newb when it comes to this.

Well, that helps me some. I still have no idea what I am doing really. I follow the link and until I get to where the MAKE command is, I can't go any further. Cygwin doesn't seem to understand what the MAKE command is at all. Do I need zlib and what is it?

You probably need to run the Cygwin installer/updater again and get Make installed. I'd imagine it's under Development tools, though I'm not sure.

Also, Cygwin is supposedly an -awful- platform to run a MUD off of. 'Andlinux' or running Linux in a virtual machine (look up VMWare) are oft-suggested alternatives... I'd suggest Andlinux, personally. I've never used it, but I have done a VM before, and it's IMO a bit of a hassle.

You need to install GCC too. I don't know what package that's in for Cygwin, sorry. Probably somewhere under Programming.

Found the GCC files. Now its doing this.

mud.h:25:18: zlib.h: no such file or directory


Now do I have to instal zlib or what?


EDIT: Well, I ran the cygwin installer and found zlib in the devel tool directory so it is doing something now.

Sounds like it's not linking against zlib properly. The only time I've had to deal with these issues was when compiling MUSHclient from source, when I didn't have zlib in the right place. Maybe that's your problem, but I wouldn't know where the 'right' place is for you.

Well, I don't know if zlib would be in the right place or not, I downloaded it via cygwin with the setup.exe so I would assume it would install to the correct spot. O well, maybe someone will have some insight soon :D

Template:post=1085 Please see the forum thread: http://gammon.com.au/forum/?id=1085.

Appears to be similar to your problem even though it's a different code base.

Can you paste your Makefile? There may be a section you need to edit to get zlib to work correctly.

Also, when installing Cygwin it is generally best to just install -ALL- packages (unless space is an issue for you). That way you don't have to run the updated repeatedly to get all of it's goodies.

I'm not sure I'd call it awful. It may not be ideal, but it does its job quite well. MUDs don't really rely too much on hardware performance, so it is a convenient way to develop and run a MUD, and many people can host it just fine using Cygwin. Cygwin provides pretty good quality replication of a linux environment (though not as good as the real thing of course! :P). I personally make my MUD Cygwin and Linux compatible so that I can develop on my Windows box with Dev-C++, but host it permanently in Linux environment.

I've never used Andlinux, but I have used VirtualBox and it is quite easy to setup and play with.

As I said, it's an MCCP - Cygwin problem. Comment out that line:
#OPT_FLAG = -DMCCP
