Hi everyone,

My goal is to get a mud up and running using DIKU's source code.

I have downloaded the source code, but am not really sure what to do now.

Could you kindly point me in the right direction?

Do you plan on trying to host it on your computer or are you looking for an external host?

Untar/unzip distribution.
Start reading instructions
If it's the updated Diku distribution on this site the instructions are found in the file called INSTALL_NOTES
You'll have to decide which operating system you want to run it on.
You'll have to make sure a compiler and tools are installed.

The right direction would be not to pick this codebase to start with unless you have a very good reason to do so.
Otherwise, I personnly use Eclipse CDT with Cygwin on Windows to develop a Diku/merc/Rom base, and when I am ready to push it on a server (a centos) I an test it in a virtual machine with a Fedora installed with Ecipse as well, and I can use Valgrind there to check for memory leak or Buffer overrun. The advantage being I have the same tool on both Oses.
