Mudos under Ubuntu

, | Tweet this

I installed Mudos on my laptop which is running Ubuntu Edgy. I had two problems compiling the source for v22.2b14.

The first issue is this error when running make:

make: *** No rule to make target `obj/malloc.o', needed by `driver'.  Stop.

The solution, bizarrely, is to just run make again. I don't know what the issue is, but discovered this in the depths of the mailing list archives.

The second issue I get when compiling is this error:

socket_efuns.c: In function 'get_socket_addres':
socket_efuns.c:1198: error: invalid lvalue in unary '&'
make: *** [obj/socket_efuns.o] Error 1

Doing this change fixes the issue:

$ diff socket_efuns.c.orig socket_efuns.c
<     addr_in = &(local ? lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : lpc_socks[fd].r_addr);
>     // addr_in = &(local ? lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : lpc_socks[fd].r_addr);
>     addr_in = local ? &lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : &lpc_socks[fd].r_addr;

After that, everything works wonderfully.
