Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could help me. I am having trouble starting this low4 mud I found. I have been trying to learn the code, but I am having some trouble due to me being blind. So it is takeing me an extremely long time. I was just wondering if anyone could help me. Because when I make it compiles but when I type ./startup &(port) it gives me this
The numbers are the id's of the startup processes you spawned, but they won't be running on the port you specified because it's not in the right place. It needs to be before the &. An ampersand means that everything before it will be run and kept running in the background. Anything that comes after it is most likely interpreted as a new command.
So, the correct syntax would be './startup port &'
My guess is you have a bunch of startup scripts running in the memory now. One of them has kicked off the server on its default port, and the rest of them are just continuously failing to do that. You can kill them by typing 'killall startup'.
I tried your idead but still no go. It wierd though because when i load another codebase up and run it with ./startup & it starts up fine and the mud run with out problems with the same exact things i posed before. WHen i load up the LoW4 code and compile then go to start it up the same way as the before i.e. ./startup & show the same mesage but the mud won't start. So the method works one way but not the other it is confusing. Any other help you can offer would be awesome, and Thanks for all the help you have already provided.
