Mudos under Ubuntu

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

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 = &amp;(local ? lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : lpc_socks[fd].r_addr);
>     // addr_in = &amp;(local ? lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : lpc_socks[fd].r_addr);
>     addr_in = local ? &amp;lpc_socks[fd].l_addr : &amp;lpc_socks[fd].r_addr;

After that, everything works wonderfully.
